Joker Hazy IIPA Returns to Hopworks for Second Year
PORTLAND, Ore. Mar. 10, 2021 — Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB), the first B Corp brewery in the Pacific Northwest, has released Joker Imperial Hazy IPA for its second year, a limited-run hazy with big body and low bitterness.
“Each year, the Joker, much like a real court jester, will be a wildcard when it comes to its hops and malt bill, so enjoy this year’s batch and look forward to a fresh, new Joker in 2022,” said Matt Speckenbach, Head Brewer at Hopworks. “You might also notice a big 13 on the skull of this year’s label, which signifies our 13th anniversary! Stay tuned for more on that as we plan to celebrate our anniversary at our brewpubs on Earth Day this year.”
Joker Imperial Hazy IPA is available through April at both the Powell Mothership, 2944 SE Powell Blvd., and HUB Vancouver, 17707 SE Mill Plain Blvd., Vancouver, Washington.
