At Hop Dogma, we have a pretty simple business rule. It is to always be striving to push ourselves to improve as brewers and make the best beer that we possibly can. We hold ourselves to expectations that each batch needs to be better than the last. We believe that it's this commitment to learning, never being quite satisfied, and an obsessive-compulsive stubbornness that has made Hop Dogma a worthy beer destination.
After years of brewing on a 3.5bbl system and gypsy brewing to supply our needs, we recently purchased a brand new 10bbl system and relocated to a more spacious facility. We have already initiated a new barrel program and are excited to begin a new chapter of making even more delicious and fresh beer for you.
We remain committed to our goal of creating unique, fun, and flavorful beers. For us, the reward is that we hopefully get to share a delicious beer with you. We recently moved to the Harbor Village in Half Moon Bay and are excited for you to see our new taproom and what we've been up to. Cheers and thanks for reading!
