The official Washington Hop Mob Kickoff at Brouwer’s Cafe takes place on Thursday, February 2, 2017. We expect to have 32 Triple IPAs on tap at that event. Other, smaller events—we call them Roadshow events—will follow for the next 10 days across Western Washington, from Vancouver to Bellingham.
Hop Mob Quick ‘n Dirty
- The term Hop Mob refers to a robust collection of Triple IPAs. These super-hoppy beers typically weigh in at more than 10 percent Alcohol By Volume. This year, dozens of Washington breweries are creating triple IPAs and releasing them at the same time.
- The term Roadshow refers to the fact that this is not just one event, but a series of events across Western Washington spread out over the course of 10 days (starting on February 2, 2017).
- The term Washington refers to the fact that all of the Hop Mob beers are brewed by Washington breweries.
The Hop Mob Kickoff features the largest collection of Hop Mob beers brewed by the participating breweries. Expect to see more than 30 of the world’s hoppiest creations on tap at the Hop Mob Kickoff. Each of the Hop Mob Roadshow events feature at least eight Hop Mob beers.
