Hopamania Tour Caters To Hop Heads

America has become a nation of hop heads. Beer drinkers can't get enough of the resinous aroma and array of piney, citrusy, and bitter hop flavors. Breweries are churning out several varieties of Pale Ales, sessionalbe IPAs, and higher ABV DIPAs to meet demand and everyone knows the fresher it is, the better it is. But let's face it, sometimes that "bottled on" date from 8 days ago juuuust doesn't cut it. TJ Peckham, Wachusett Brewing Company's North Shore, Cape & Islands Sales Manager, is a self-professed hop head. During a marketing meeting at the brewery, he pitched an idea (and a logo mock-up) that promised to deliver fresh hop flavor to Wachusett beer fans in a way that's never been done before. Wachusett Brewing Company's Hopamania Tour lets beer drinkers dry hop a pint of Wachusett beer right before it hits their lips. With what sort-of resembles a tea infuser, hop fans can pick from a menu of "hopsicles" that are filled with different hop varieties. Pick a hopsicle, pick a Wachusett brew, and enjoy! The Hopamania Tour brews include: Larry Imperial IPA, Green Monsta IPA, IPA, Country Pale Ale, and Light IPA. The Hopamania Tour hops include: Simcoe, Amarillo, Cascade, Chinook, Citra, Centennial, and Lemon Drop.
