“Seven years in and we’re still growing,“ said Tom Vogel, CEO at Belching Beaver Brewery. “To maintain our brand’s success, we will continue to grow through innovation, new product lines and operating exciting locations. I’m most proud that many of the original people who started with the company are still here. Learning the business and growing it together has been an incredible experience, and the complete dedication of all of our team members has made this all amazing. It’s just awesome.“

As the production brewing team was brainstorming recipe ideas for this year’s special anniversary release, naturally, a Hazy IPA recipe calling for an abundant variety of hops made it to the brewhouse.

“For the past three years, hazy IPAs have been made to celebrate our anniversary, since we’re a group of self-proclaimed hopheads and hazy IPA enthusiasts,“ said Troy Smith, Brewmaster at Belching Beaver Brewery. “This year, we switched it up by incorporating a few hops varieties that we don’t normally brew with, and the result is juicy and delicious. Anyone who appreciates the ‘haze-craze’ will want to get their hands on our new special, limited release, celebrating our 7th year of having a Dam Good Time while brewing.“
