Brewery Spotlight – Sloop Brewing Company, Hopewell Junction, New York
Sloop Brewing Company, suitably named for the ships that used to meander up and down the Hudson River, has been providing the Hudson River Valley with fantastic beers since 2011. They put emphasis on New England style IPAs but also brew stouts, sours, and classic lagers. The Hudson River Valley is known for their beer, and this brewery is among the best. “Juice Bomb” is their Flagship NEIPA and a beer we always have in stock. From their website, “The low bitterness and late hopping showcase the citrusy, juicy notes of American hops. A blast of tropical aroma is followed by a resiny and balanced flavor. Juice bomb features all the aspects and nuances of full hop flavor — not just bitterness. An IPA for real hop lovers.” Several other beers make their way down to us here at Beermill including the “Bomb” series and the “No” holiday series, all of which are IPAs. For all of February, we will have terrific deals on all Sloop products in the Store!
