A Hoppy Place
SIBA UK's Best Independent Craft Beer Retailer - Single. 2021.
A Hoppy Place rotates around 200 beers across our 5 fridges and 4 degree direct draw cellar, and staunchly believe in coldchain. Ambient beer is sad beer.
A Hoppy Place is run by Naomi and Dave alongside Naomi's brother Jason. We opened A Hoppy Place in August 2019 having previously worked for Lovibonds Brewery and Mad Squirrel. In the most stereotypical of all craft beer tales, Dave's is also an IT consultant. Woo! Craft Beer!
We are fierce champions of independence within the UK, and hosters of many online, and when we are able - offline - events. As well as being a beer sommelier who loves hosting tasting sessions, Dave is a loud person in many facebook groups. Naomi manages our branding amongst nearly everything else, and actually pulls pints in person whilst Dave is too busy chatting. Naomi has to moderate Dave regularly. We recently released our first physical book, a beginners guide to food and beer matching, written and illustrated by Naomi. We love doing brewery collabs, having worked closely on events with multiple Berkshire breweries, and brewed with a few more.
For us, we do beer for the community, and we love that we've managed to foster one of our own through a very, very weird first year and a half. Cheers to everyone for being a part of it, and of our little bubble that is craft beer.
