It’s been a busy few months for us at Hopjacker, as well as perfecting our four core beers, we’ve started a run of specials. A 4.6% brown ale with fresh ginger, dubbed Snake Oil and a 6% black IPA with Sorachi Ace hops, brewed in honour of Lemmy from Motörhead and available in both cask and ecokeg being the first to be released.

As I’m writing this we are in the process of mashing in for our first collaboration. We’re brewing with Steel City Brewery and revisiting a forgotten style, a Kentucky Common, though as you might expect our version will be somewhat more hoppy than would be historically accurate!

You can find our beers in fine pubs around Sheffield and Chesterfield, and of course at Dronfield CAMRAs Winter Pub Of the Season, the Dronfield Arms!
