Take a look at our previous winners. This year, it could be you!
HOP HOOLIGANS, Romania
Using COMET hops, Hop Hooligans impressed our panel of independent judges with their COLLISION COURSE hazy IPA. Since 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 BarthHaas X 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 increased their brand recognition.
Marco Valeriani headed the Hammer brew house to clinch the UnderDog Champion place using MANDARINA BAVARIA hops. No surprise that this twice-named Italian “Brewer of the Year” has now moved on to launch his own brewery, Alder Beer Co.
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, where they make beers and craft sodas.
