Hoppy Brewing Co. is steadily making its way to Binny’s, and has already debuted at a handful of our stores. The Sacramento, CA based brewery has unleashed four beers upon Binny’s, all in 22oz bomber packages for the price of $4.99 each. Chicagoans are among just a few with accessibility to these brews, as we are one of the lone states outside of California currently seeing distribution of the Hoppy Brewing Co. line of beers. As the name of the brewery indicates, the Hoppy Brewing beers take their representative styles to hoppy extremes. Below are the four beers now available:
Hoppy Face Amber Ale – Don’t be fooled by the name of this beer, for it is an alias. Hoppy Face is not an amber ale, rather it is a tongue bitingly bitter west coast style IPA with a high ABV.
Liquid Sunshine Blonde Ale Hoppy Brewing refers to this one as a Specialty Ale, claiming that it falls outside the borders of any one style category. It is clean, crisp, refreshing, and light bodied, yet it is still aggressively hopped and bitter. Sensing a theme here?
Total Eclipse Black Ale This is a light and dry stout that clocks in at 5.6% ABV. It has typical stout flavors of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts to go along with a noticeable bitterness.
Stony Face Red Ale Caramel and chocolate malts result in a deep amber color and richness. A sweet caramel malt flavor coincides with a creaminess. Of course there are more than enough Cascade and Nugget hops to provide balance.
