TopWire Hop Project, the beer garden that’s located in the heart of a hop field at Crosby Hops, recently reopened for the 2023 season. For this year, TopWire Hop Project has partnered with Block 15 Brewing on its TopWire IPA Series. And the first release, TopWire IPA Block No. 01, is now available.
TopWire IPA Block No. 01 is brewed using CGX Cryogenic Lupulin Pellets – Nelson Sauvin CGX and Riwaka CGX sourced directly from Crosby Hops and estate-grown Comet from Crosby Hop Farms. CGX Cryogenic Lupulin Pellets uses Advanced cryogenic technology that separates lupulin from whole-hop cones to deliver concentrated lupulin pellets jam-packed with resins and oils. The result is both environmentally friendly while preserving the character of each hop in full expression.
“As a beer garden located in the middle of Crosby Hop Farm, TopWire has built a reputation for serving the highest quality beverages for hop lovers,” said Anthony Mottola, General Manager, TopWire Hop Project. “It’s only natural to team up with one of the best to bring our signature TopWire IPA to life, and we couldn’t be more excited about our partnership with Block 15. We know our customers will fall in love upon the first sip, surrounded by our hops in the summer sunshine.”
“We are extremely excited to be collaborating with Crosby on this project year and helping showcase their new CGX products,” said Matt Williams, Brewery Director, Block 15 Brewing. “The opportunity to make this beer and partner up with Crosby helps highlight our mutual commitment to sustainable business practices, and the use of high-quality, locally sourced ingredients in our products.”
The next of the series, TopWire IPA Block No. 02 will be released mid to the end of June at Topwire Hop Project and Block 15 Brewing locations.
