Our brewers’ intention for Hops Infusion was to create an IPA with complex hops flavors and aromas not found in any other beer. Made with seven hop varieties, this deep copper-orange IPA is loaded with juicy hop notes of pine, lemon zest, and a layer of pink grapefruit and a strong foundation of toasted caramel malts underneath it all. Hops Infusion weighs in at 6.2% and is available year-round.
In case you are wondering, the seven varieties are Cascade, Pilgrim, Centennial, Liberty, Saaz, Fuggle and E. Kent Golding.
UPDATE! When it was debuted in 1998 at our old Brew Pub on South 6th Street in Easton, Hops Infusion wore the yellow ‘particle’ label (see below). In 2006 or so, Weyerbacher updated the label to the blue one. Hops Infusion production has now ceased. Hops Infusion was officially retired on Friday 5/25/2012 at a special event at the Weyerbacher Brewing Company, Inc. Click here to read about the event!
