What Is Hop Water?

It’s been almost a year since I opened the online Sans Drinks superstore and, in that time, I have researched and sampled literally hundreds of alc-free beers, wines and spirits.

When I first heard of Hop Valley H20, a new product from the Heads of Noosa Brewing Co. I have to admit that I was a little stumped. Hop infused seltzer? Tell me more!
 
It turns out that while the team at Heads of Noosa Brewing Co. are the first brewery to bring Hop infused seltzer to Australia, it’s not a totally new idea.

“We would love to take claim to the original idea of Hop Water,” Craig Masterton, co-founder of Heads of Noosa Brewing Co. and the brains behind Hop Valley H2O, tells me. 
 
“We actually first saw it being done by a few breweries over in America. We had been playing around with the idea for quite a while and once we tried our first brew, we knew had to share it with everyone!,” he adds.

Hop Valley Founded on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, The Heads of Noosa Brewing Co, is a family run, independent brewery with a passion for the pure ingredients that they work with – like hops. Interacting with hops everyday meant that Craig and his team had an appreciation for hop flavours, so it didn’t take long for them to start getting creative.  
 
So, what exactly is Hop Valley H20? Hop water is as simple as it sounds, explains Craig. “It’s a sparkling hop infused water. It's refreshing, crisp and with zero alcohol, zero sugar, zero carbs and gluten free - it's completely guilt free,” he says.
 
“Hop water is the perfect alternative to an alcoholic beverage,” he adds.
 
Being water based, Hop Valley H20 is ultra-hydrating and a great addition to your wellbeing and fitness routine

Hop Valley H2O is water
As well as being a refreshing drink, Craig tells me that hop water can also be used as a mixer for occasions when a little extra kick is required. “If you're a gin lover, we highly recommend pairing it with a classic dry gin and a slice of pink grapefruit - the hopped highball as we like to call it,” he explains.
 
I couldn’t wait to try Hop Valley H20. I drank it chilled and straight out the bottle. I found the flavour to be slightly sweet, with floral, fruity, and citrus flavours. It has a refreshing mouthfeel, and the effervescence is invigorating on the palate.
 
I can’t wait for my customers to start trying it!
