    Hopquila ?!

    Luxist reports 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 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."

    This has been mentioned a couple places

    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!
