According to a filing with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) on Friday, it appears that Jughandle Brewing Co. in Tinton Falls, NJ is set to release their first canned offering. On August 10th, Jughandle received TTB approval for a can label for Hopshorne Galaxy.
Hopshorne Galaxy is a 7.2% ABV Double Dry-Hopped New England Style IPA. Hopshorne Galaxy is a variant of Jughandle's Hopshorne New England IPA that has been generously dry hopped with Galaxy hops. Can art for the beer reads, "Hopshorne is our tribute to Harthshorne Woods, one of our favorite Monmouth County Parks. The Hopshorne series was crafted to showcase the flavors and aromas of different hop combinations using a single base beer."
The original Hopshorne debuted on draft at the brewery in mid-November 2017. Hopshorne Galaxy was the first variant to debut in early January. Since, Jughandle has released 11 additional variants: Zythos, Idaho 7, Medusa, Vic Secret, Jarrylo, Blue Steel, El Dorado, Jade Secret, Cashmere Outside, Citra, and Mosaic.
We reached out to Jughandle for additional details, but we have not received an immediate response.
