The Hoppiest Place On Earth

Some say our beers are too hoppy. To that we say, “Damn straight.”

The Hop Pack is the realization of this ideal. Our second variety pack of 2021 gives you all the hops you could ever want out of a 12-pack. Then we add more.

In addition to Furious IPA, these three brand-new beers make this the Hoppiest Place on Earth:

  • Impossible Objects: Patterns upon patterns and layers on top of layers, each building on one another to create a seemingly impossible object. That was our goal with this new juicy IPA. Impossible Objects features zero hops in the kettle, relying instead on Sabro, El Dorado, Citra, and Amarillo dry-hopping to build a new vision of the IPA—massive hop flavor with almost no bitterness. Impossible? We object.
  • Mean Streets: Whether you’re out on the mean streets or living in the lap of luxury, this complex and intriguing IPA speaks to you. Featuring the Sultana hop varietal—a relatively new hop centering notes of pineapple, lemony citrus, and pine—Mean Streets is a gritty, groundbreaking twist on the “new school” IPA. You don’t make up for your sins at church. You do it with a Mean Streets.
  • Screen Time: Your weekly Screen Time report is in, and it says you should put your phone down and enjoy this super satisfying, double dry-hopped pale ale. Generously hopped with Simcoe and Centennial hops for a huge hit of citrus pith, floral grapefruit, and piney flavor, there’s no such thing as too much Screen Time.

The Hop Pack begins hitting stores the week of April 5th. It’s available to all Surly markets.
