Hopstate IPA 2019
India Pale Ale Brewed with 100% NYS Hops
Brewed entirely with New York State hops, Hopstate IPA is our annual tribute to a storied past and a bright future.
In the late 1800s, upstate New York produced 80% of the nation’s total hops. The crop was central to the region’s economy, but blight and Prohibition combined to destroy the industry.
Today, the NYS hops industry is steadily rebuilding, and we’re proud to play our part by brewing with the fruits of our local farmers.
