The Definition of Drink Local

We love a good brewing session, and it’s made even more special when we get to incorporate great, local ingredients.  We are very excited about our latest partnership that we collaborated with on creating a new brew, Dawson’s Delight Halfmoon IPA. The beer is made with hops from Rockin’ Hops, a farm located just about a mile down the road. The farm, which started back in 2012, has developed from a backyard production in Ballston Lake to adding a large second farm location in Mechanicville. Rockin’ Hops currently produces about a dozen different hop varieties that you can purchase in both pellet and whole leaf form. Dawson’s Delight Halfmoon IPA is currently in Hank’s Tank and will be hitting the taps in early December.

We know how much effort it takes to start a new business and owner of Rockin’ Hops, Eric Linendoll, has worked hard to build his dream, just like our team. Working with local businesses is something engrained in Hank Hudson Brewing’s spirit and we look forward to a great partnership with Rockin’ Hops.  We plan on announcing some more local collaborations in the near future so stay tuned!

Partnering with local businesses feels great, but tastes even better- come check out the Dawson’s Delight Halfmoon IPA when it hits taproom in December!
