Hophead

Microberărie: Hophead Brewing
Str Mehedinti 94, Cluj,, Cluj · Since 2016

Cea dintai artizanala a Clujului, Hophead, a aparut la inceput de 2016, la 5 ani distanta de Terapia, surata-princeps a Timisoarei rivale si prietene. La parterul unui mic bloc din Manastur, o romanca si un macedonean au inceput o treaba tare buna.

De pornit, s-a pornit in tromba, cu 9 etichete in 2016:

  • IPA-urile Hophead OpiumHophead Pure C. si Hophead Opium 2x Dry Hopped Anniversary Special
  • amber ale-ul  Hophead RedLine
  • golden ale-ul Hophead Autopilot
  • porter-ul Hophead Dark’oh
  • brown ale-ul cu super nume Hophead neBruna Dupa Tine
  • witbier-ul  Hophead gRoZava
  • American pale ale-ul Hophead Immigrant.

Lucrurile au continuat la fel de abundent in 2017:

  • session IPA-urile Hophead Chihlimbar (editie speciala pentru roack-erii de la Luna Amara) si 5 Years of Spirit (editie speciala pentru restaurantul clujean Jaxx American)
  • IPA-urile Hophead Opium Centennial Overload si Hophead Opium 2x Dry Hopped 2nd Anniversary Special
  • imperial IPA-ul Hophead Karma
  • neasteptatul Hophead Vișne, cel dintai fruit beer al patriei.

Primavara lui 2018 a adus 4 titluri noi:

  • coffee IPA-ul Hophead 2 Year of Bujolé (co-productie cu  prajitoria de cafea clujeana Olivo Coffee Roasters)
  • Hophead RedLine Chinook Dry Hopped, continuarea amber-ale-ului din 2016
  • IPA-ul Hophead Hop Me Up
  • American Pale Ale-ul Hophead Little D.

Cea dintai colaborare din istoria clujenilor s-a intamplat in iarna lui 2018, sub forma IPA-ului Hop Hooligans & Hophead Screwed Up, produsa la ilfoveni acasa.

Primul weekend de august ne-a oferit, la Hangar Gastropub, a first taste of Hophead & Hop Hooligans Trouple Gum, un Belgian IPA produs, de data asta, in Manasturul natal.

In octombrie 2018, si-a pus numele pe eticheta si micro-beraria la bataie pentru American IPA-ul Berea Clujenilor, gandit impreuna cu Bere a la Cluj si Kutuma si produs in micro-beraria celor de pe urma.

La mijloc de noiembrie au aparut IPA-ul Hophead WingNut si o noua editie speciala a uneia dintre etichetele-fanion ale marcii: Hophead Opium 2x Dry Hopped Anniversary Special (2018).


2019 a inceput cu New England IPA-ul Hophead Hop You Up, urmat, pe final de februarie, de un duo gROZav:

In martie, clujenii au propus curajul Hophead Othervice, un IPA avand la origine trei tipuri de drojdie!
