Bison Kermit the Hop Double Simcoe IPA returns

BeerPulse - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 16:26

Press Release: 

(Berkeley, CA) – It might come as a surprise, but Bison’s brewmaster Daniel Del Grande didn’t intend to brew his popular Double IPA, Kermit the Hop, again until next year. But popularity and success have a funny way of shaking things up.

“My original goal was to make Kermit a yearly release––rotating it in and out of my portfolio like a seasonal,” explains Del Grande. “But, my customers wouldn’t let that happen. And our customers are always right––just ask my sales team.”

“I get calls about Kermit the Hop every day,” notes Mark Cabrera, Bison’s Sales Manager. “And for good reason. It’s one of the best beers we’ve ever brewed.”

Bison’s Double IPA currently boasts an overall score of 97 (out of 100) on the popular beer rating website RateBeer.com––making it the highest ranked beer in Bison’s portfolio. And if beer geek love wasn’t enough, Kermit the Hop just took home a bronze medal in the IPA category at the California State Fair––the most popular category this year with 178 entries total.

“I was extremely humbled and honored to take home bronze for Kermit the Hop,” beams Del Grande. “California is home to the best IPAs in the world. Winning this medal was almost like winning the World Beer Cup.”

With over three pounds of Simcoe hops per barrel, Kermit the Hop is bright, citrusy and tongue-tingly bitter. It is an excellent match for spicy foods, strong cheeses, and anything fried.
