Lil’ Hoppy

 
ABV: 
5.57
IBU: 
62
Availability: 
Limited, Draft Only
Original Release Date: 
03/2012

Lil Hoppy is an ode to the delicious monastic brews of Trappist Monks from Belgium, in a style that is typically reserved for the Monks themselves and rarely sold to the masses. This Americanized version was brewed with 100% certified organic malts, a dash of Belgian clear candi syrup and a choice blend of both American and European hops, and then fermented with a true Belgian yeast strain. Crisp and wonderfully dry with slight notes of tropical fruit and biscuit followed by a wave of floral earthy and herbal hop character that finishes with a soft bitterness that slowly builds as you sip. A perfect beer for when the sunlight begins to last longer and the days grow warmer. Lil Hoppy is a great session beer but also perfect for pairing with lighter dishes like the Cobb Salad or Fish Tacos.

Lil' Hoppy goes on tap Friday, 3/9/12 for the Weekend of Compelling Ales & Whatnot. It'll be around until it's not.

Due to limited availablilty, Lil' Hoppy is not available in growlers.

For the past few years, we’ve released an extremely limited run of ceramic Punkin Ale growlers made by our friends at Romanick P
The Bullbuckers. You know 'em & you love 'em! They're back to get their ska-filled skank on! Show starts at 10 p.m.
