HopRaiser West Coast IPA

British Columbia, Canada
6% ABV • IBU 50

HopRaiser West Coast IPA is a delicious, hoppy, and highly aromatic India Pale Ale, made for beer people who love the taste and flavor of big-time hops. Brewed with Pale, Munich, and Wheat malts and a gigantic amount of Pacific Northwest hops, HopRaiser delivers a pack of hop aroma and flavor through a variety of hop-bursting and dry-hopping techniques. HopRaiser is an old term for a grower of hops, and this beer is named specifically for the Squamish Valley Hop Raising Company, which was established in the Squamish Valley in 1891, and sold hops to Canada, England and elsewhere over the next few decades. With the fall of hop prices during World War I, the hop company closed in 1917, and the farm was converted to cattle production. Today, wild hops can still be found along roadsides where the old hop farm was located. So join us in raising a pint to the hop - and our shared history with it - in the evolution of beer in all parts of the world.
