Bison Brewing Kermit the HopKermit the Hop makes its grand debut during SF Beer Week

PRESS Release – (Berkeley, Calif.)— It isn’t always easy being green. Sexy organic hops haven’t always been easy to come by—a challenge that Bison Brewing has been fighting for over ten years.

But, the organic hop landscape has changed dramatically since Bison received its organic certification in 2003. The organic hop quality and variety available is the best its ever been. This year, Bison was able to contract a huge allocation of organic Simcoe®, finally allowing Daniel Del Grande, Bison’s owner and brewmaster, to brew his first-ever Double IPA using 100% organic hops.

“Kermit The Hop is more than just a beer to me,” explains Del Grande. “It celebrates the huge strides that have been taken by organic hop farmers in reaction to organic brewers in the last decade.”

With over 3 pounds of hops per barrel, Kermit The Hop is super aromatic and crisp with bright flavors of citrus and pine. Tongue-tingling bitter, Kermit The Hop pleasantly numbs the gums, finishing clean and ultra dry. Boasting over 100 IBUs, Kermit The Hop is one of the hoppiest, if not the hoppiest, organic beers ever brewed.

“The rest of the craft beer world is crying about a hop shortage and, for the first time ever, I’m not. It’s incredibly refreshing,” says Del Grande.

Kermit the Hop will make its grand debut this evening at the San Francisco Beer Week Opening Gala Celebration—and it just might be the freshest beer there. “We are kegging Kermit first thing this morning. The beer will literally be going from tank to keg to festival floor.” Del Grande boasts, “It doesn’t get much fresher than that.”

Bison will also be making its first-ever appearance at the 14th Annual Double IPA Festival on Saturday where, yet again, Kermit the Hop might be the freshest beer on tap.
