The Alchemist Heady Topper Beer

The state of Vermont might be best known for Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream or maple syrup, but what they should be known for is beer, and one beer in particular. The Alchemist is currently focused on brewing one beer perfectly, Heady Topper ($12/4-pack), and seem to be at or near perfection already. The world class IPA is loaded with hops but isn't the most bitter or strongest IPA you've had, just the most balanced. You'll also notice the request on each vessel to "DRINK IT FROM THE CAN" which is quite enjoyable, but we haven't had one yet that wasn't, regardless of your quaffing preference.

  • Duff Beer

    While we'd rather skip the massive gut, everything else about Homer Simpson's lifestyle — compulsive eating, guzzling beer, and watching TV — seems a-ok. Now you can take one step in that direction by ordering up a case of Duff Beer (£25; roughly $40). Brewed in Germany, this surprisingly smooth 4.7 percent lager is the perfect way to pick up a dull barbecue or tackle a tough Thursday afternoon. Woo-hoo!

  • Newcastle Werewolf Beer

    If you're an ardent HBO viewer, you might think this is a True Blood tie-in — and while that's not nearly as far fetched as we'd like to believe, it's still not the case. Newcastle Werewolf Beer ($9/6-pack) is instead one of four Newcastle Limited Edition brews, and features an appropriate blood red color, sweet berry overtones, and just a bit of bitterness that make it a perfect companion for your fall activities.
