Hoptimize Custom Common

“HCC”

California Common

Holding loosely to the California common style native to our urban neighbor to the south, this steamy off the grid Humboldt rendition starts with mountain spring water and organic Admiral malt. The wort was boiled for a short time and a healthy dose of organic homegrown Chinook hops was spun in at flame out. A large starter of traditional San Francisco lager yeast supercharged the magic of fermentation. Primaried on the warm side for a lager it developed an iconic malt toastiness that can be balanced to your taste with Hoptimize.

Hoptimize Hop Charge

Hop Charge

Hoptimize Hop Charge: An all new, non-Alcoholic, craft brewed, low calorie hop concentrate to add to soda water or anything else. The full flavors of citrusy tropical hops without malt or calories. We will be serving samples in carbonated spring water, or our HCC.

Hoptimize Organic

Hop Charge

Hoptimize Organic: An all natural blend of the finest hop extracts. Emergency hops to add to any beer anywhere. Taste in our HCC.

 

 

As a service to our fellow brewers, Hoptimize will be offering a beer de-foamer for anyone that might need it. If you have ever poured draft beer you have come up against a keg that just won’t pour without filling the glass with foam. We came across this superpower in our extensive hop R&D and realized it was something every brewer could use.

Flagship Porter

Porter

For sheer versatility, porters are hard to beat, offering sturdiness, on the one hand, drinkability on the other. They can be the epitome of balance, or a dark, bitter beer for hop lovers. The range of flavors in porter is almost unparalleled for a beer of modest means. Soothing enough for cold weather, modest enough for warm, porters may still take a back seat to stout, but they occupy the driver’s seat for many.

VOTE FOR PEDRO

Light Mexican Lager

5.3% ABV - 3.4 SRM - 22.2 IBU's

Pale, crisp, and thirst quenching. This beer has a light body, yet wonderful malt backbone derived from a blend of mostly Weyerman malts and Flaked Maize. It gets it's slightly citrus hop aroma and smooth flavor from a blend of Old and New World hop varieties. The "Most Interesting Man in the World" would definitely drink this!

 

 

57b

SUCH A BRÜT

BRÜT IPA

8.1% ABV - 3.1 SRM - 24 IBU's

A very light bodied and highly carbonated IPA designed to truly be "The Champagne of Beers". With a malt profile that tastes great, but stays out of the way of the hops, which are the star of the show here. This beer is bone dry, thanks to the use of Gluco-Amylase enzymes that drive the final gravity to .996. This beer gets absolutely no hops in the boil, but lots post boil in the whirlpool and a double dose of dry hops in the fermenter. El Dorado, Citra, Ekuanot, and Amarillo hops make this beer burst with hop flavors and aromas! Don't let the IPA name scare you, beer drinkers of all levels love this beer. This beer is deceivingly crushable (and therefore dangerous) at 8.1% ABV!

58

Steve

Railsback

Bavarian Gold Lager

Märzen (German Fest beer)

This beer is inspired by the Schönramer Gold Festbier brewed in Schönram, Bavaria and often on tap at Dead Reckoning in Arcata.
