An ever-evolving mix of experimental hops, designed to deliver mind-blowing flavors that break the rules with each new release. The unique revolution number on the label tells you which release you have in hand. Crack fresh and enjoy the show.
Luponic Distortion Revolution No. 001 features a blend of six different hop cultivars from the 2015 harvest, with an emphasis on a zesty tropical fruit-driven experimental hop to create something entirely unique. A wheat malt base provides a clean canvas for showcasing a pure hop character. Aromas of pineapple, papaya and citrus creamsicle explode out of the glass. Resinous undertones yield to flavors of candied mango, red grapefruit zest and fresh green tea, all dissipating quickly into a clean, dry finish.

|It began innocently enough: a couple of brothers-in-law sitting around debating the subject of good and bad beer. Instead, their search for a decent ale led them to brew their own. Given Mr. Firestone’s winemaking bias and Mr. Walker’s complete lack of fermentation experience, they believed 60-gallon oak barrels were the appropriate vehicle in which to create their perfect elixir.
OK, so initial attempts were forgettable. But like so many great ideas, out of that disaster was born a handy invention – the Firestone Union. Based on classic brewing traditions from Burton-Upon Trent, this bizarre and unlikely system of linked barrels has the ability to produce rich and complex ales. In 1996 the accidental duo shelved their endless discussion on better beers and settled for building a world-class brewery that bore their names on California’s Central Coast……the debate was now over.
