Alchemist Applies For Construction Permit In The City Of Stowe

According to Sally Pollak of the Burlington Free Press, The Alchemist has applied for a construction permit in the city of Stowe to build 14,652 sq ft building off Cottage Club Road.

The site is off the Mountain Road (Vermont 108) across from a cemetery and just before the Sunset Grill, according to Alchemist co-owner Jen Kimmich. The project involves a purchase contract to buy the land from Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa, a resort on the Mountain Road.

The application calls for a commercial building for beer production and a retail outlet on a proposed 4-acre site, Baker said. The application will go to the town’s seven-member Development Review Board June 3, Baker said.

Seasonal beers and other brews, including Focal Banger and Holy Cow IPAs, would be produced at the Stowe brewery, Kimmich said. There is no timeline in place pending approval of various applications, Kimmich said. But if construction were to proceed as broadly envisioned, the facility would likely not open until spring 2015, she said.
