Hippo-HOP-amus is an easy drinking black session ale packed with layers of flavor that belie it’s 4% A.B.V. Thanks in large part to the delicious & aromatic local chocolate rye used in the beer, Hippo-HOP-amus will please your nose & palette with a lingering roastiness that is well balanced by the piney hops and the subtle spiciness from the rye. Given the lighter body of this beer, it actually drinks like an IPA, and it tastes like a chocolate covered pinecone. We absolutely love this beer, and we hope you do, too!

Hippo-HOP-amus began as a home brew from our now lead brewer Chris. Once we tried it, we knew we had to brew it on our larger system!
