🚨Another new beer on tap!🚨

Well, it’s not new-new, but you all crushed it so fast our first time, we brought it back again! “If You Ain’t First, You’re Last”

This (clearly) crushable Hazy IPA is made with a super special, and rare, Superdelic hop from @nzhopsltd. 

Superdelic is a brand new hop from our friends at NZHops in partnership with @bsgcraft. We combined it with a dollop of another phenomenal NZ hop, Nelson Sauvin, to give this beer some absolutely amazing aromas and flavors. Tropical candy and stone fruit dominate, with bright citrus and slight berry notes in the background. Combine that with a soft, yet full mouthfeel from plenty of oats and wheat in the malt bill.

So, shake and bake and get to Hackamore and try this beer with the newest hop on the market. Because if you ain’t first, you’re last.

🚨New beer alert!! Kolschie!🚨

An endearing term our brewers and leadership have for one of their favorite styles. We brewed our first, true-to-style Kölsch with a traditional German yeast strain. This beer is dry and slightly hoppy with floral notes owing to the noble German hops we brewed it with. 

It’s crisp. It’s clean. It’s refreshingly tasty. So, raise a glass with us! Prost!

#kolsch #kölsch #prost #germanstyle #hackamorebrewing #newbeer #newbeeralert #mnbeer #cheers
🚨New beer alert!! Stay Puft S’mores Golden Ale!🚨

“It’s the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!” Made in collaboration with our friend Joe Wishy, we brewed a Golden Ale with all the flavors of your favorite campfire treat! Thought a Stout was the only kind of s’mores beer? Well, guess again!

Come on in and have a pint! Oh, and whatever you do, don’t cross the streams… 😮

🚨New Hazy IPA Alert‼️🚨 
If You Ain’t First, You’re Last Hazy IPA

I wanna go fast!! Superdelic is a brand new hop from our friends at @nzhopsltd in association with @bsgcraft. They were kind enough to give us the first crack at this awesome new hop varietal. 

We combined it with a dollop of another phenomenal NZ hop, Nelson Sauvin, to give this beer some absolutely amazing aromas and flavors. Tropical candy and stone fruit dominate, with bright citrus and slight berry notes in the background. All that with a soft, yet full, mouthfeel from plenty of oats and wheat in the malt bill. This beer is a real treat!

So, shake and bake and get to Hackamore and try this beer with the newest hop on the market. Because if you ain’t first, you’re last! 🚗💨 🏁

🚨New Sour Alert‼️🚨

This one is for all the Swifties out there. T-Swizzle isn’t from Georgia but she sure is a peach. This Travis and Taylor-inspired Peach Ring Sour clocks in at 5.7% ABV and 7 IBUs. 🍑 

Travis thinks Taylor is staying with him but she belongs with me-e-e! So he should shake it off because she Should’ve Said No.

On tap and available today! 🍑

It’s MMA (Movember Mustache Awareness) time at Hackamore!

For the entire month of November, each Mo Bro must grow and groom a mustache. 

- Don’t fake it. No beards, no goatees and no fake mustaches.

- Use the power of the mustache to create conversation and raise funds for men’s health. During the month of November a portion of proceeds will be donated to Men’s Health organizations. 

- Each Mo Bro must conduct himself like a true gentleman.

- Contest with prizes given to Top 3 mustaches on Nov 30 @ 7pm in our taproom. 

This cause is near and dear to our hearts as we have testicular cancer survivors on staff. So, let’s show our support and bring awareness to men’s mental and physical health!

We’ve been smashing pumpkins just for you!

Come on in and get our new Pumpkin Ale, Mellon Collie and the Pumpkin Madness, while it lasts!  We brewed this seasonal beer to coincide with the fall and our half birthday this Saturday.

This is our tribute to one of our favorite bands, and our take on a Pumpkin Ale. We brewed a solid malt forward Amber ale, with pumpkin purée and other spices to make this beer your favorite fall pie in a glass! And our brewer, Tom, makes one hell of an album cover muse! 🤣

So dont be a ZERO, come on in TONIGHT, TONIGHT and have a pint.

We hope to see you from 3-11pm this Saturday for our 1/2 birthday celebration as well! We have another special beer release coming! 🤫

So many great options, especially on a Monday or Tuesday when we usually don’t have a food truck in. So, enjoy, and support these two wonderful businesses!

Welcome to our Hops Helping Hunger Series. 

The first beer in our partnership with Feed My Starving Children is our Hope Amber Ale with Graham Cracker and Honey. This beer releases today!


Our neighbors right across the street, @fmsc_org, have been providing meals for hungry children for years. Each meal packed provides the nutrients required to reduce problems with malnutrition, which in turn allows each child to thrive and reach their full potential.

At Hackamore, we wanted to brew a beer with graham cracker, a staple food in the diet of young children in this country. Brewed with wildflower honey from Argentina, combined with graham cracker, it’s a beer that is sure to satisfy. It comes in at a hefty 6.9% ABV.

Care to take it to the next level? Add a graham cracker rim for $1 more!

We’d love to see you stop by and help provide a meal for a child in need, simply by enjoying this beer. Raise that glass to support this wonderful organization. 🙏🏼
