BRAVE NEW BREW ALERT!
Introducing, “Hop Hoarder”.
A couple of years ago a certain American mega brewery bought up the entire South African hops market, making it nearly impossible for independent craft brewers to share them. Those hops, which included some of the most sought-after new varietals on the market, were earmarked for the breweries owned by said mega brewer.
WELL, we got our hands on some of these amazing varietals (Southern Passion and Southern Tropic, to be precise) and were thrilled to obtain enough to run a 40 barrel batch; then we thought: “what if we just cut production in half and double the hop load?” So we did!
This hop fortress of a Double IPA comes in at 8% ABV and boasts intense aromas of passion fruit, guava, and tangerine with a robust mouth feel that all finishes with a healthy herbaceous hop bite. Take note hop heads, this one’s for you!
Find it on draft and in 750 mL bottles in all of our taprooms and on retail shelves tomorrow. This is a small batch and as such it won’t last long. We suggest you hoard as much as you can! Cheers!
