You may have seen a few posts recently about the upcoming coffee beer festival ‘Hopwired’, including our recent Q&A with the organiser, Mike. Well, we’re happy to get to be the ones to break some great news – we’ve got the list of the Hopwired collaborations and they’re awesome!
Each one of these collaborations will be producing a coffee beer, specifically for the festival. I’ve spoken to a few of the roasters and it sounds like there are some very interesting plans for this event.
Here’s the full list of the Hopwired collaborations:
1914 Coffee & Galileo Coffee with Backcountry Brewing
1914 coffee have arguably the most ridiculously large and high-quality lineup of coffee in Canada, so this one should be unique. Buggered if I know what though!
This one I’m really looking forward to. De Mello has been one of my favourite roasters in Canada for ages and 33Acres have one of the best beer lineups in town, as well as a solid coffee element to their business.
Ethical Bean Coffee + Moody Ales
Definitely more of a big player in town, Ethical are a very large roaster that edge towards the darker end of the roast spectrum. I’m expecting something toasty and rich.
Fresh Cup Roastery Cafe + Lighthouse Brewing Co.
I’m not really familiar with Fresh Cup, but I’ve been to lighthouse brewery and loved their coffee lager from a few years ago.
