The beer that Reuben’s Brews created as the house beer for Zeeks Pizza is hardly a token effort. Zeeks Pizza, the local beer chain with a pizza problem, teamed up with Reuben’s Brews back in 2015 to create Hop Tropic, an IPA that would make both companies proud. Learn more about this five-year affair here.
Thus, Hop Tropic IPA was born and almost immediately began impressing beer fans around the greater Seattle area. It also started winning awards and accolades. It won a silver medal at the North American Beer Awards. It won back to back titles as the Grand National Champion at the US Beer Tasting Championship. Hop Tropic was named 2015’s Best IPA in the Northwest by Sip Magazine. The list goes on.
By now you should be aware that all of the Zeeks Pizza locations serve up a great selection of beer. AND they’ll deliver it to your door with your pizza! Not just cans, but draft beer in crowlers and growlers.
Now, Hop Tropic IPA is available in cans. You can order cans of Hop Tropic IPA from Zeeks Pizza for delivery or you can pick it up at Reuben’s Brews’ to-go store in Ballard. A very limited amount of it will see distribution to other retailers.
“This is a new year-round beer for Reuben’s and we’re obviously stoked to feature it on our Bottle Shop On Wheels menu,” says Tommy Brooks, the resident beer impresario at Zeeks.”
“We are selling 4-packs for $12 for delivery, pick-up, and takeout. Still doing growlers and crowlers of Hop Tropic draft for delivery, pick-up and takeout and pints in-house where we have outdoor seating. Of course, endless pints will be consumed post-pandemic.”
Zeeks Pizza is no stranger to collaborative relationships like this. Though this one might be the longest-standing, the company has regularly teamed up with local breweries to produce exceptional beers.
