For the first time ever and in time for fall, Lawson’s Finest Liquids has canned a black IPA. Big Hoppy, at 7.5% ABV, is now available across the brewery’s nine-state distribution area of VT, CT, MA, ME, NH, NJ, NY, PA and RI.
Made with large additions of five hop varieties and seven malts, Big Hoppy is a dark brew reflecting a resinous, sticky fusion and big bitterness, the company says. The beer leads with a roasted flavor profile complemented by its bitterness.
“Big Hoppy was first brewed as a limited batch before moving into the taproom at Lawson’s Finest,” says Sean Lawson, CEO and Founding Brewer of Lawson’s Finest Liquids. “As a Black IPA, it offers something uniquely fitting for fall. Our fans in the taproom made it clear that Big Hoppy is a seasonal favorite, so we couldn’t be more excited to debut the beer across the Northeast for the first time this year.”
Big Hoppy is the latest beer released as part of Lawson’s Finest specialty distribution calendar. Now until the end of October, Big Hoppy heads out in 4-packs to retailers across the Northeast. Later this year, the brewery will continue its calendar of specialty releases with Mad River Maple, and its annual Barrel-Aged Winter lager.
