In addition to crafting delicious, world-renowned beer, The Alchemist is committed to the environment, its employees and the community at large. As a certified B Corporation, The Alchemist is a recognized leader in waste reduction, responsible water use, and innovative technologies that minimize their environmental impact. The Alchemist is committed to their employees’ health & wellbeing, and this is demonstrated through their benefits program, which includes employer-paid health insurance, paid parental leave, child-care subsidies, a 10% 401k match and a wellness program that includes fitness, stretching and meditation classes. The Alchemist takes pride in being an inclusive workplace, employing Vermonters with intellectual and physical disabilities, and demonstrating a commitment to gender equity at all levels of the organization. Through the youth-focused Alchemist Foundation, they invest in long-term partnerships with many community organizations.

In 2020, The Alchemist released a plan to dismantle racism in their community by focusing on three areas of strategic interest –- working to ensure anti-racist education in public schools, strengthening their brand position within the multicultural marketplace, and establishing Vermont as a welcoming place for Black, Indigenous and people of color. “We are so proud to have been able to build this business in Vermont, and to use our voice to advocate for policies that help Vermont’s people and environment. Our employees, our customers and our neighbors all benefit from our triple bottom line commitments.” –- Jen Kimmich, co-founder and CEO of the Alchemist Brewery and board chair of the Alchemist Foundation. In 2018, VBSR awarded Jen Kimmich the Terry Ehrich Award for Lifetime Achievement

The Vermont Professionals of Color Network is an organization whose mission is to build opportunities to improve the experience, representation, and success of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) professionals and businesses in the state of Vermont.
 
The vision that we have for this organization and for this State is huge, it’s audacious, it’s radical. We are planning to write Vermont into the history books ... to change it from being the second oldest and second whitest state in the country, to having a vibrant thriving young professional and entrepreneurial BIPOC community.
 
We believe prosperity starts with opportunities to climb the economic ladder, and that a prosperous BIPOC community is a good thing for ALL of Vermont!
 
Join us as a BIPOC member or support us in our mission through monetary donations and gifts or other forms of donations at www.vtpoc.net.
