We love all things local, and one of our favorite sectors of local food is local beer. There are so many different brews, flavors, and styles, and so many stories to tell! That’s why we’ve embarked on an exciting home.grown. adventure: to bring you fresh craft beer stories each month from our Northeast region. Our region is home to some of the best craft breweries in world, and we’re telling their stories to our craft beer fanatics here on our blog.

Up next: Sloop Brewing Company!

Named after the boats that once moved people up and down the Hudson, Sloop Brewing Company came into fruition in 2011. Founded by Adam Watson and Justin Taylor in pursuit of new tastes and adventures, the duo got their start by selling beer at farmers markets across New York’s Hudson Valley. In 2014, they opened their first production facility in a Dutch post & beam barn in Elizaville, NY. Recently, Sloop followed up by opening a brand new 25,000 square foot facility in East Fishkill’s former IBM plant. 

Sloop’s star player is their juicy, hazy, flagship Juice Bomb IPA. In this explosive brew, late hopping and low bitterness combine to bring about citrusy, juicy notes of American hops. An exciting blast of tropical leads the way, and a resin-y, more balanced flavor calms the drink down at the end. Juice Bomb is a must try for real hop lovers!
