Luxist reports (http://www.luxist.com/2010/06/12/hopquila-a-new-way-to-drink-hops-and-barley/) that New Holland Brewing of Holland, MI
is making a product called Hatter Royale Hopquila - a
cross between a beer and a spirit.

New Holland website (http://newhollandbrew.com/corp/spirit/hopquila) says it's a "...fermented wash of 100%
barley is twice distilled, then steeped with Centennial hops.
The vivacious spirit features a grain-centric body framed by
citrus-laden hop character in the nose and finish."

I also remember Lost Pollito Joe talking about having a hoprita once.

Anyway, I have an open bottle of this. It's interesting, and good. It is not quite a tequila flavor but it's close enough for mixed drinks and even drinking neat. It's pretty affordable too. I think it's good that New Holland is taking risks and realeasing them widely when they pay off. Plenty on the shelves here too.

My apologies. I did a search but got no results. I just
checked again and the autofill showed I was misspelling it.

Sorry about that.

No need to apologize, it deserves its own thread!
