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!
Agro Roasters + Doans Craft Brewing Company
Agro made it to our Top 10 Roasters list this year so I’m expecting the coffee part of this beer to be exceptional.
De Mello Palhetta + 33 Acres Brewing Co.
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
Fresh Cup Roastery Cafe + Lighthouse Brewing Co.
Milano Coffee Roasters + Faculty Brewing Co.
Modus Coffee + Four Winds Brewing Co.
Notch Coffee + Fuggles and Warlock Craftworks
Pallet Coffee Roasters + Steamworks Brewing Co.
Last year they produced a coffee infused white stout, by steeping whole beans in the brew. It was delicious. Plus. Pallet won Coffee Roaster of 2017.
Prototype Coffee + Luppolo Brewing Company
Newbies Prototype have been wowing Vancouver with some incredible roasts right out of the gate. They’re fresh to the scene (well for roasting anyway) and heavily hyped, this one should be interesting
Republica Coffee Roasters + Trading Post Brewing
Smoking Gun Coffee Roasters + Field House Brewing Co.
White Goat Coffee + Sherwood Mountain
One more collab to look forward to:
