Recipe Notes:

A clone of one of the best known Vermont beers (and that's saying alot). Heady Topper is so well loved by Vermonters, folks will wait hours in line before the stores open to get a case. There's even a website to help you locate some:

So... why not make some yourself and avoid the crowds?
