LINCOLN, NE. May 30th, 2024 – Empyrean Brewing Co.® proudly presents its inaugural non-alcoholic offering, Hop Drops—a unique sparkling water meticulously infused with hops to deliver the crisp and refreshing essence of Empyrean’s signature brews without the alcohol content.

Hop Drops is alcohol, gluten, sugar and carb-free to cater to health-conscious consumers seeking a flavorful alternative to soft drinks, or for those desiring the tasty appeal of hops without the effects of alcohol.

“The original idea behind hop water was to make something refreshing and beer-like that brew staff can enjoy while working in a busy brewery. Ours turned out so tasty, full of citrus – yet light and crisp, we decided that we have to share this delight with others.” says Jim Engelbart, Operations Manager.

Hop Drops Sparkling Water is brewed without grain or sugar, generously hopped, then biotransformed using beer yeast. The biotransformation brings out the best hop flavors and aromas. Featuring Mosaic, El Dorado and Bru-1 hops, you’ll find this version crisp and lemon-centric. With only three ingredients, water, hops and yeast, this beverage is a cool and refreshing guilt-free alternative.

This launch was also inspired by Empyrean’s commitment to meeting the evolving needs of their local community. “Over the years, our community has expressed interest in alternative products, particularly gluten-free and non-alcoholic options. We believe Hop Drops offers the perfect combination to meet these demands,” adds Ben Matya, Sales Manager.

Hop Drops will be available for purchase at select retailers starting beginning of June 2024.
