Where to go: Alchemy Spirit House
Address: 640 S. Main St., Zionsville
What to get: Pub cheese and crackers
Anna’s take: Alchemy Spirit House is a relatively new micro-distillery near downtown Zionsville. The vibe is really cool. I first found Alchemy for its cocktail. The inside is inviting for a night out enjoying cocktails, but there’s plenty of menu items to snack on. The soft pretzel ($10) is giant and shareable and served with spicy and mild mustard. The charcuterie board ($15) is a beautiful sight with assorted smoked meats, assorted cheeses, dried fruits, crackers and more. The pub cheese and crackers were my favorite – such a wonderful snack of Tulip Tree Creamery Fons-due pub cheese with a slight kick with club crackers and mini pretzels. Make sure you check out the upstairs – it has the most beautiful blue velvet sofas that I wish I could add to my living room. Alchemy Spirit House is a great place to go on a date or with friends and spend time hanging out enjoying craft cocktails and small bites.
