A month-long celebration of hop-forward beers
DENVER - May 30, 2018 - Call to Arms Brewing Company will host its second annual Hop Month this June, but this year it will be called McLovin Month. Why McLovin Month, you ask? Well, because they added more hops to it! McLovin Month is a month-long celebration of all things hoppy, and the moniker stems from the brewery’s love of hops, which has led to the addition of even more hoppy beers to the brewery’s roster!
“In June 2017, we hosted our first Hop Month, and we are incredibly excited to keep the tradition going this year, especially after bringing home some hardware from the World Beer Cup for ‘More Like Bore-O-Phyll’ our fresh hop IPA, which we are bringing back in whole cone form for McLovin Month,” said Chris Bell, owner and co-founder of Call to Arms. “Hoppy beers have been an integral part of our lineup since day one, and we look forward to sharing the unique appreciation of what hops are and why brewers are so enamored with them.”
Brewers have been using hops in beer for more than 300 years. Only in the past two decades has the craft beer industry seen an explosion in the amounts, varieties and ways they are being used. McLovin Month is a celebration of how far hops have come and the amazing amount of diversity they can add to beer. McLovin Month will feature more than 12 different hop-forward tappings over the course of 30 days.The tappings for McLovin Month include:
