    STOWE — A Vermont brewery forced to close its Waterbury retail operation because its popularity overwhelmed the neighborhood is seeking a construction permit for a new building in Stowe.

    The Alchemist brewery in Waterbury makes Heady Topper. It closed its retail shop in November.

    The Stowe site involves buying land from Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa, the Burlington Free Press reported.

    “We love the spot,” said Alchemist co-owner Jen Kimmich, who runs the brewery with her husband John. “We had a list of criteria we needed for our new brewery, probably a list of 10 different items that were critical. Most important were traffic, access to village water and sewer, and plenty of land for growing hops and cherry trees.”

    The application calls for a 14,600-plus-square-foot commercial building for beer production and a retail outlet on a proposed 4-acre site.

    The business owners say Heady Topper will continue to be produced at the Waterbury brewery, but the double IPA in the 16-ounce cans will be sold at the retail outlet/visitor center that is part of the proposed project.

    Seasonal beers and other brews would be produced at the Stowe brewery.
