Bright Hop Aroma
- Fresh Grind IPA
- IBU 37
Rupture was born out of our obsession with getting the most out of each and every hop. In fact, we built a machine in our brewery to incorporate a unique fresh grind process. By grinding the whole hop we “rupture” the lupulin inside – releasing the oils that give the beer its flavor. And what we grind that day we use that day. Leaving you a beer that’s fresh, aromatic, with a bright hoppy character.

How do you fresh grind hops?
Build a Custom Hammer Mill
To achieve this unique flavor profile, we installed a custom-built hammer mill at the brewery, a piece of equipment that’s typically only operated by hop merchants. It’s a wildly inefficient process, but once we tried the test batches, we knew it was worth the effort. What we grind that day, we use that day. There’s a bit of a ticking clock that starts as soon as you rupture the lupulin. To get the hops at their peak, you need to move fast. It’s a lot like coffee. We all know fresh ground beans make for a more complex cup of joe. Rupture applies those same principles to hops.
It’s no secret that we love hops. While we work with both whole flower and pellet hops across our other beers, Rupture gave us an opportunity to try something brand new.
