The Original Texas Hopwater
This is a sponsored post in partnership with Whitestone HopWater
Zero calories, sugar, carbs, or alcohol and it's gluten-free, but what exactly is HopWater? It's carbonated water with a twist! Dry-hopped with Centennial and Cascade hops with fresh raspberry and lime additions, the original HopWater from Whitestone Brewery is delicious to drink alone or mix with your favorite spirit. Even though it's heavily dry-hopped, Whitestone HopWater is not bitter. Because hops are flowers of the Humulus lupulus plant, they frequently have a floral or citrus aroma and flavor, especially when used as dry-hop additions.
"Whitestone HopWater is truly unique and we feel is a flavor that is first to market," says co-founder Ryan Anglen. "Although there are other versions nationally, we developed a specific process internally over the last year and a half to get a product that was new to the palate, desirable in cans, and most importantly, delicious alone or as an all natural mixer to enhance and compliment your favorite spirit. We ended up consuming so much of it internally and have moved so much of it through our taproom it was only right to get it to others and fast.".
Whitestone Brewery introduced the original Whitestone HopWater in the taproom in April 2020 and in cans on store shelves this past March, where it can be found at your local H.E.B in the non-alcoholic beverage section and at these retailers. To keep up with demand, Whitestone Brewery is expanding to Liberty Hill and just received approval to have a retail taproom at the new location.
Aside from being refreshing on a hot day, Whitestone HopWater is a great mixer that pairs well with a variety of spirits, dubbed "Hoppy Highballs" by Whitestone's Hoppy Highball Mixologist Mondo Rivera. Grab a six-pack today and try one of Mondo's fabulous concoctions:
