Scroll down more and you'll feast your eyes on our history of seasonal brews. These saucy numbers allow us to stretch our brewing legs and experiment with flavour profiles.
Inspired by the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich, where Hop Stuff was born.
This is the historic site where ammunition and artillery were made for WWI and II. It was a bleak time, so workers were permitted ‘four hour sessions’ of beer to boost morale – without getting steamed.
As such, this is a genuine IPA with a sessionable ABV and bitterness. It keeps its hoppy aromas and oaty body without knocking you off your chair. A juicy, fruity brew built for anyone.
Available: Keg and can
Hops: Columbus, Mosaic, Rakau, Amarillo
A lot of pilsners are filtered, which can sometimes filter out aromas and body.
Unfiltered Pils keeps the flavour in. It's a hazy Czech pilsner with Perle, Saaz and Mittelfruh for flavours of honey, fresh lemon and spice. Ideal for drinkers not used to craft beer, but savourable enough for craft nuts
Available: Keg and can
Hops: Perle, Saaz and Mittelfruh
Like the Four Hour Session , the Arsenal Pale Ale is inspired by Hop Stuff’s birth place on the Royal Arsenal; a genuine craft beer brewed to be enjoyed by all over a few hours.
It’s a genuine American pale ale with all five hop variants from the 'Land of the Brave'; a juicy refreshing sheep in wolf's clothing, to please anyone from connoisseurs to craft newcomers.
Available: Can and cask
Hops: Ahtanum, Columbus, Citra, Amarillo and Mosaic.
Our first ever beer in 2013. After years of drinking, fine-tuning and more drinking, this award winner is everything you look for out of a West Coast-style IPA.
The Renegade IPA has five grunty hops to flavour: Citra and Cascade for citrus, Ahtanum adds floral notes, Mosaic for tropical fruits and Columbus for touches of pine. All evened up with malty caramel sweetness.
Available: Keg, can and cask
Hops: Citra, Cascade, Ahtanum, Columbus, Mosaic
OATMEAL STOUT - 4.8%
It’s a stalwart. A classic. A legend. With a Hop Stuff twist.
The Fusilier is Hop Stuff’s easy drinking amber; malty biscuity English bitter. Perfect for luring the weary traveller off the cobblestones into a toasty pub, served alongside a hearty plate stacked with pub grub. Nom nom nom.
An oldy but a goody from the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich.
Available: Cask only
Hops: Columbus, Brewers Gold, Celeia
The Hop Stuff Oatmeal Stout is a cask favourite that delivers everything a cosy pub needs to shoo away the blustery winter outside.
All English hops, dark and brooding. Malty, dark roast coffee notes and smooth oaty goodness.
Available: Cask only
Hops: Willamette, East Kent Golding
Every couple of months we squeeze time into the brew schedule to stretch our creative legs and experiment with more daring flavour profiles. We might brew alternative beer varietals, try single hopping with something new, or get into a collaboration. You have to taste to find out (while they last).
We collaborated with Quite Good Cards for this Vienna Lager. They make alternative greeting cards out of East London, and specialise in the witty and obscure. See the time-lapse video of this artwork being hand-painted below. You can check them out online or at Broadway Market every Saturday.
As for the beer, it's a lightly tinted Vienna Lager: balanced but with plenty for eager lips to taste. The Vienna malt and Mandarina hops copulate to birth a post coital orange candy kiss. Slippery drinkability and tantalising 'come hither' zest make it a tasty little menace - as crazed as its namesake
Available: Keg only from June 28th 2017
Hops: Perle, Mandarina Bavaria
"When life hands you hops, make beer"
So said the Hop Stuff brewers when Sorachi Ace hops were dumped on their door step. Instead of sending them back, they put together an herbaceous creamy red ale.
More-ishly complex. Caramel notes are followed by hints of lemon, dill, and coconut. Like drinking a Bounty bar.
Available: Keg only from 1st April 2017
Hops: Sorachi Ace
