02 Apr Bloomington Breweries Collaborate on ‘Drone-Hopped’ Beer – Hop Strike
In celebration of Bloomington Craft Beer Week, Upland Brewing Co., along with fellow Bloomington Breweries, Function Brewing, Bloomington Brewing Co., Quaff On Brewing, and The Tap, collaborated and brewed a drone hopped beer–Hop Strike! We are always looking for innovative ways to get more hops in our beer and have fun while doing it; so we commandeered a drone packed it with hops and let it fly.
Hop Strike is a dank India Pale Lager. This brew is packed with Chinook, Cascade, Centenial, Simcoe, Mosaic, Galaxy, and Amarillo hops. In honor of the Tomahawk chopper, CTZ hops (Columbus Tomahawk Zeus) were dropped from the drone. Expect a powerful floral hop aroma with a crisp and clean finish.
