Nonstop Hef Hop!
Today we release our newest beer - Nonstop Hef Hop. This low-alcohol, dry-hopped American-Style Wheat beer was created for drinkers who maintain active lifestyles. The beer clocks in at just 3.9% ABV and has the feel of a NW Pale Ale in body and flavor, but without the extra weight, calories, and alcohol. Nonstop Hef Hop is brewed with a variety of organic NW hops, organic malted barley, and red spring wheat grown on the Hopworks estate farm on San Juan Island.
We wanted to package this beer in a way that echoed Nonstop Hef Hop's "keep your edge" spirit. So we canned the beer in twelve different 16 oz cans, each showcasing different NW Activities. Each 4-pack will feature a random assortment of designs including: bicycling, camping, running, kayaking, soccer, basketball, darts, corn hole, skateboarding, disc golf, skiing, and fishing. Be the first to collect all twelve!
Potato Gun IPA Release Party Tonight and Tomorrow!!!
Potato Gun IPA (Idaho Potato Ale) is our collaborative beer with Payette Brewing, in Boise. It was brewed with over 50 lbs of organic Idaho Purple Potatoes. The beer will be released at Hopworks on Powell tonight, February 18, at 6pm. Meet the Payette team and try some Purple Potato Fry specials!
