Using COMET hops, Hop Hooligans impressed our panel of independent judges with their COLLISION COURSE hazy IPA. Since the announcement of their win, they’ve hired an additional full-time brewery employee, launched their cans available for purchase online through Honest Brew, and (thanks to the generous UnderDog travel fund!) joined Simply Hops on the Hallertau Hop Harvest Tour to enjoy the second-largest hop growing region in the world, as well as poured at or attended about a dozen festivals which continues to increase their brand recognition.
When they won the competition using SUMMIT hops, Tiny Vessel unleashed a small new experimental brand featuring unfiltered and vessel-conditioned beers.
With TARGET, a serious UnderDog of a hop, Ebeltoft achieved victory in our very first UnderDog competition. Ebeltoft is known for their gorgeous farmhouse brewery and beer garden, as well as their affiliation with Mikkeller - Ebeltoft beers and craft sodas are available at the Mikkeller webshop and they collaborated on a special brew for the MBCC '19.
