Get Ready, Hopheads: 2SP Brewing is Releasing a ‘Hop Bomb’

To make a hoppy beer you need a truck full of hops.

Hey, IPA lovers—how does a beer brewed with over two hundred pounds of hops sound? Maybe a little crazy, but 2SP Brewing says they’ve created a “hop bomb” that produces the big hop flavor and aroma hopheads love, without it being too bitter.

Properly named Hop Leap IPA, their new, limited release brew is being tapped on Leap Day, February 29th and they plan on brewing it once every four years. 2SB brewers Bob Barrar and Andrew Rubenstein created the recipe containing Columbus, Citra, Centennial, Cascade, Amarillo, Simcoe, and Nugget hops that produce a balanced IPA with an ABV of 6.5%.

If you want to try Hop Leap IPA, here’s where you can find it on tap on Leap Day:

  • Brü Craft & Wurst, Midtown Village
  • City Tap House (both Logan Square and University City)
  • Varga Bar, Washington Square West
  • Standard Tap, Northern Liberties
  • North 3rd, Northern Liberties
  • Local 44, University City
  • Good Dog Bar, Center City
  • Industry, Pennsport
  • Devil’s Den, East Passyunk
  • Tria Taproom, Rittenhouse
  • Alla Spina, North Broad
  • Whole Foods-Plymouth Meeting
  • Teresa’s Next Door, Wayne
  • Old Eagle Tavern, Manayunk
  • Sidebar, West Chester
  • Split Rail, West Chester
  • Pour House, Exton
  • Prohibition Taproom, Poplar
  • Pinocchio’s, Media
  • McCrossins, Fairmount

 Each of these places are only getting a half a keg of Hop Leap IPA each, so it will probably go fast.
