Hop Hooligans

Microberărie: Fabrica Hop Hooligans
Sos. Giurgiului 33A, Jilava, Ilfov · Since 2016

Brandul cu cel mai bogat portofoliu din piata romaneasca a berii artizanale exista pe lume din primavara lui 2016. Atunci, berarii din Jilava si-au incercat mana la confratii de la Ground Zero, la a caror micro-berarie au produs IPA-ul Hop Hooligans & Ground Zero Six Years o’Clock. 

Primele etichete produse in microberaria proprie au aparut in noiembrie 2016: IPA-ul Hop Hooligans Crowd Control, American pale ale-ul Hop Hooligans Summer Punch, Premium Bitter-ul Hop Hooligans Royal Execution, Imperial Stout-ul Hop Hooligans Chupacabra, porter-ul Hop Hooligans Cannon Fire si black IPA-ul Hop Hooligans Night Lights. Cadoul de Craciun era completat cu IPA-ul Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy V1 (Rakau & Waimea).

2016 a insemnat 7 etichete Hop Hooligans in mai putin de 2 luni de existenta a fabricii proprii, plus colaborarea cu Ground Zero, la bucuresteni acasa, gen test-pilot!


2017 debuteaza cu milk stout-ul (premiera nationala!) Hop Hooligans Dumpster Bear, wheat ale-ul Hop Hooligans Emperor si o noua IPA de serie: Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v2 Hallertau Blanc & Hüll Melon.

De-a lungul primaverii lui 2017, s-a lucrat din greu: imperial stout-ul Hop Hooligans Tonka Rush, barley wine-ul Hop Hooligans Melting Pot (unicat pe piata romaneasca si cea mai alcoolizata bere mioritica produsa in primii, cel putin, 7 ani de existenta a artizalelor romanesti: 12.5% ABV!!!), session IPA-ul Hop Hooligans Fist Fight, wheat beer-ul de tip Weissbier Hefeweizen Hop Hooligans Lederhosen si imperial stout-ul Hop Hooligans Koschei. 

S-a trecut apoi la o serie de IPA-uriHop Hooligans & Ground Zero Seven Years O’ClockHop Hooligans Shock Therapy v3 Azacca & Simcoe si Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v4 Waimea & Falconer’s Flight, in care s-au strecurat imperial IPA-ul Hop Hooligans Modern Mosaic si colaborarea cu banatenii de la Bereta pe nume Hop Hooligans & Bereta Nutbusters.

Unul dintre cele mai populare titluri ale marcii, Spice/Herb/Vegetable-ul Hop Hooligans Sencha, a fost produs pentru prima oara in vara lui 2017. A venit apoi o noua eticheta din cea mai lunga serie a craft-ului mioritic: Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v5 Ekuanot.

Primul sour beer din istoria nationala se numeste Hop Hooligans Sourpuss: Blackberry si este un 

Pentru al doilea sau Craciun, Hop Hooligans a propus 3 etichete: IPA-ul Hop Hooligans Evergreen, English strong ale-ul Hop Hooligans Winter Socks si inevitabilul IPA Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v7 Sorachi Ace.

Tragand linie si adunand, avem 23 etichete cu Hop Hooligans in rol principal in 2017


In iarna lui 2018, a aparut al doilea  Hop Hooligans Sourpuss: Raspberry, urmat de o serie de 6 IPA-uriHop Hooligans & Bereta Pulp Friction (colaborare cu Bereta, desigur), Hop Hooligans Heartbreaker, Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v8 Citra & Ella, Hop Hooligans & Hophead Screwed Up (prima colaborare cu clujenii de la Hophead), Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v9 Falconer’s Flight si Hop Hooligans & Wicked Barrel New Lands (dimpreuna cu oamenii de la Wicked Barrel).

Pentru primavara lui 2018, ilfovenii au propus sweet stout-ul Hop Hooligans Why the Long Face?, IPA-ul Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v10 Azacca, imperial stout-ul Hop Hooligans Time si alte 2 IPA-uriHop Hooligans & Ground Zero & Bereta ∞ (Eight) Years O’Clock (omagiu tripartit celor 8 ani de existenta ai barului bucurestean Beer o’clock) si Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v11 Citra. 

Prima eticheta a verii 2018, s-a numit Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v12 Centennial & Ekuanot. O IPA, desigur, urmat, la o luna distanta, de surata Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v13 Simcoe. Intre cele doua v-uri, s-au strecurat alte doua IPA, co-productia Hop Hooligans & Bereta & Wicked Barrel & Berero Birthday Bash (o IPA cu capsuni aniversand 3 ani de Berero) si Hop Hooligans Shady Sushi, primele doua etichete din istoria craft-ului romanesc produse exclusiv la can metalic.

Iulie 2018 a marcat o alta premiera in istoria ilfovenilor: primul titlu la care contribuie doar cu un rol secundar in producerea etichetei. IPA-ul Bereta & Hop Hooligans White Diamond Whale s-a nascut la Timisoara, in proaspat-lansata fabrica a timisorenilor. Experimentul a fost repetat in aceeasi luna la Cluj, cu ocazia IPA-ului Hophead& Hop Hooligans Trouble Gum, produs in Manasturul capitalei Ardealului.

Augustul ne-a adus berea cu numele cel mai lung din peisajul local: Hop Hooligans Simply Hops We Like New Hops And We Cannot Lie. O IPA, ce altceva pe caldurile acestea :)?

In septembrie, am gustat in premiera al treilea Berliner Weisse, Hop Hooligans Sourpuss: BlackcurrantHazy / New England IPA-ul Hop Hooligans Earth is Not Flat si al 14-lea episod al seriei de IPA a brand-ului: Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v14 Amarillo & Rakau.

In octombrie, ilfovenii si-au diversificat portofoliul de “beri acre” cu sour wild ale-ul Hop Hooligans Trial and Terroir (premiera nationala), sour IPA-ul Hop Hooligans Wild Alert si au produs al 15-lea al “Tanar si nelinistit”-ului casei: Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v15 Loral.


Noiembrie 2018, luna in care aniversam 2 ani de Hop Hooligans, a insemnat un oarece regal! Am avut parte de 7 etichete noi lansate intr-un singur weekend: 23-25 noiembrie 2018!

Iarna 2018-2019 a inceput cu un nou episod al clasicei serii de IPA-uri: Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v17 Enigma & Citra & Ekuanot.

La mijlocul lunii, in Mikkeller Bucharest, a fost lansat primul Brut IPA al patriei: Hop Hooligans Bubbles are Forever.

2018 s-a incheiat, pentru hiper-activii berari ai Jilavei, cu milk stout-ul Hop Hooligans Cozonac, abia al treilea sweet stout romanesc.

All in all, 2018 ne-a adus 35 de etichete avand Hop Hooligans ca prim brand romanesc (plus 2 colaborari cu ilfovenii in roluri secundare), ducand portofoliul celui mai activ brand de bere romaneasca artizanala la 66 de etichete!


La foarte inceput de 2019, Hop Hooligans a propus IPA-ul pe baza de piersici si scortisoare pe nume Hop Hooligans Slice of Pi.

Au urmat doua imperiale: imperial IPA-ul Hop Hooligans & Zagovor Angel’s Kiss colaborarea cu rusii de la Zagovor Brewery, si imperial porter-ul Hop Hooligans Bee with Me, cu o considerabila portie de miere.

In februarie, ne-am pomenit cu o improbabila colaborare: smoked-ul Hop Hooligans & Zăganu Sausage Party.

La finalul iernii:

  • s-a batut recordul de alcoolemie al industriei: afumatul imperial stout romano-bulgar Hop Hooligans & White Stork Caravanserai are 13% ABV.
  • s-a repetat un nume de eticheta, dar cu o alta reteta si, pe alocuri, alti producatori: in nov 2018, aparea britanico-romanul sour Waen & Hopcraft & Hop Hooligans Yuri’s Cosmic Basil; la final de feb 2019, am salutat Berliner Weisse-ul romano-britanic Hop Hooligans & Team Toxic Yuri’s Cosmic Basil.

Primavara lui 2019 a inceput cu oarece colaborari de martie:

Tot in martie, ilfovenii au lansat un spectaculos double dry hopped double IPA: Hop Hooligans Collision Course: Comet BBC, Centennial BBC.

Al 18-lea episod al nesfarsitei serii de IPA-uri a avut doua versiuni: Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v18A American Cascade si Hop Hooligans Shock Therapy v18A Australian Cascade.
