Each year since 2012, we’ve brewed Hop Swap so that our fans can experience the wonderful flavors and aromas that can come from hops. This beer is brewed using the same recipe, but we swap out the hops annually. We couldn’t be more excited for you to try this year’s edition.
Our 2016 Hop Swap (ABV 6.7%, IBU 88) is a beer for both your taste buds and your nose. Expect aromas of ripe papaya and marmalade thanks to Idaho 7, a new hop to the market, grown in southwestern Idaho by Jackson Hop Farm. Idaho 7 made its Sebago Brewing debut in our Single Hop Pale Ale series and is the perfect complement to the well-loved tropical fruit characteristics of Simcoe and Mosaic.
Hop Swap is best enjoyed fresh, so come in and grab a pint or fill a growler in the brewpubs, or find four-packs of 16 oz. cans in a store near you!
