COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for the first time on January 29th 2009. Hopverdomme aka Hopdamnit, is a very original name coined by Beejay Oslon. He was a Struise intern at that time, but launched Pipeworks Brewing Company two years ago, Chicago USA. Hopverdomme is the perfect union between hops and a Flemish curse, that should live up to the high expectations of the cursed who are drawn to drink this „damned“ hoppy ale.

77ships (3801) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2012
