Ska Hop Ivy is now available in cans – the brewery’s first canned beer sourced entirely from Colorado ingredients.
Loosely based on one of Ska’s other beers, Hoperation Ivy, a wet hop ale with local hops, Ska Hop Ivy showcases locally grown Chinook and Nugget hops. Both hops were harvested at Simply Grown LLC hop farm in Palisade, Colorado. The malts are grown and malted at Colorado Malting Co. in Alamos.
The local sourcing doesn’t stop there. The yeast is from the Brewing Science Institute in Woodland Park. The brewery also used snowmelt from the San Juan Mountains.
“Hop Ivy is a tribute to Colorado’s many local farmers,” says Ska Co-founder and Colorado native, Bill Graham. “Using local harvest in the brewing process and selling the finished product within the state supports the economy and the wellbeing of Colorado—our home.”
Ska Hop Ivy is available in 12 ounce cans across the state of Colorado.
