Hopslam returns in January! We know you have some questions regarding availability so we laid it all out for you.
Eccentric Cafe & General Store:
Our classic Double IPA will be available at the Eccentric Café and General Store in Kalamazoo beginning January 6th (subject to change of course, you can always see what's available here).
Hopslam purchase options:
- 1/4 barrel keg: $155 + tax and deposit
- 6-packs: $16.99
- Mini kegs: $39.95 + tax (will be available the week of 1/13/2021)
- 16oz crowler fill: $9.00
- 32oz crowler fill: $16.00
- 64oz crowler Fill: $28.00
Everywhere else we distribute our beer:
Hopslam will start shipping from our brewery as soon as possible. As each batch is ready and packaged, it makes its way out in waves to ensure it’s getting to all of you as fresh as we can. It will make its way everywhere we distribute beer throughout January.
Some states will receive it sooner than others. Remember this beer is limited, so grab it while you can.
Our best advice to find Hopslam near you is to reach out to your local retailer after it has started shipping. They will have the most up-to-date information about their specific deliveries and/or availability.
Please also keep in mind that it may take some time before that info is available. Be patient and keep an eye on retailer’s social media channels for additional details. Searching Untappd for nearby check-ins is also a good resource.
Mini kegs will start shipping the second week of January.
Our Hopslam 5L cans will unfortunately not be shipping to the following states: Alabama, Arizona, Mississippi, Rhode Island, Wyoming, Arkansas, Louisiana, West Virginia, and Puerto Rico.
If you search our Beer Finder, also keep in mind that the results show which beers have been delivered by our distributors, but do not reflect real-time inventory (what's on shelves) or which formats are available (can, keg, bottle, etc.). We always suggest using these results to call ahead and see if these locations may be carrying or expect to carry our mini-kegs.
Remember to drink your mini-kegs fresh and within 24 to 48 hours of opening. Here's a video on how to open your mini keg.
Hopslamania Virtual Tasting!
Since we cannot host a special tour this year or even a release party at our Eccentric Cafe, we are hosting a virtual celebration complete with a guided, sensory tasting, Q&A, a virtual look around our brewery and more. You can join us on Jan. 21 or Feb. 4 (or both!) at 7 p.m. Sign-up for this free event here. And don't forget to order our special Hoplsam sensory kit so you can follow along with our tasting.
Want to show your love of Hopslam with more than just the beer in your hand? We have a bunch of awesome Hopslam gear on our online store.
Check back here next week or keep an eye on our social media for a special Hopslam announcement.
