"Ultra Fresh Stories"

A STORYTELLING COLLABORATION
THE HOP REVIEW X BIG FOOT MEDIA X HOP BUTCHER

To help celebrate the concept of freshness, we teamed up with Big Foot Media, to follow the making of an "ultra fresh" beer–Galaxy Bowl Double IPA, to be exact–from Hop Butcher for the World. We'll explore the process behind the beer from the beginning boil, to the artwork on the packaging, to the day it fills the can and reaches the drinker.

PART 1: GRIT

GRIT, the first in a three-part series, shows us a portrait of a brew day at Chicago Brewery, Hop Butcher for the World - brewing their New England Style IPA, Galaxy Bowl. Jude La Rose, explains the advantages brewers have in tasting the freshest beer around.


PART 2: GRAPHIC

GRAPHIC, the second in a three-part series, shows us a portrait of Chicago-based Artist, Dan Grzeca. Dan creates art for musicians and events but most importantly (to this story) the can art for Hop Butcher for the World. In this portrait, we see Dan pulling screens for special edition posters for Galaxy Bowl.


PART 3: GLORY

GLORY, the third in our three-part series, takes a peek into the effort required to get Galaxy Bowl from the tank, into the can which ends up in your hand. Jude La Rose speaks to the nuances of one of the most sought after beers in Chicagoland and the payoff moment of cracking that fresh can after all the hard work over the last few weeks.
