ICYMI - Catchin’ up on Hop City Headlines

Jun 07, 2024

What a week! With the water outage finally resolved, we’re catching up on all the news we missed while we were managing the crisis response. So much other stuff happened! Did y’all hear, for instance, that the founder of Chobani bought Anchor Brewing?! Maybe we’ll even get an Anchor Christmas drop this year??

There were quite a few other developments that were overshadowed by this week’s pressing priorities, so this week’s newsletter is all about playing catch up. ICYMI - here are the Hop City headlines that flew under the radar!

Speaking of mushrooms, we’re already big fans of Funguys Brewing - the name is a playful homage to the important roles fungi and bacteria play in making beer. Check ‘em out!

Methodical - This 4.2-rated hazy Double IPA offers bright citrus and tropical flavors aplenty and is hopped with Citra, Mosaic, and Motueka. 

Chuggin' Beer - This American corn lager is brewed with flaked corn for a super light and snappy crusher of a beer!
