It's been a long time coming, but we've finally brewed our first two batches of Hopewell beers. First, was obviously, our First Lager. We're super excited about this one. We think this beer is, in essence, our vision for our company boiled down into a beer. First Lager is our take on a classic style with which most are certainly familiar. We love the heritage behind lagers, but we like ours with a healthy dose of hoppy bitterness. We think this will be a good one, and we hope you like it.
The second beer we brewed was our Swift IPA. By now the IPA has become synonymous with craft beer. We were influenced by our time out on the West Coast. Think fresh pine and a resinous aroma, like a walk through a coniferous forest. We used caramel malt to add some backbone to this beer - and we're shooting for the golden luxe color. This will be one of those beers that you'll be going back to again and again, but do be careful - it's at 6.8%!
