The Capital of Craft debuts

72 and Hoppy

A San Diego Inspired Session IPA

Photo By William Garcia

Where hoppiness meets happiness

With more than 150 breweries and a craft beer culture that runs deep, San Diego lives up to its moniker as the Craft Beer Capital of America. In celebration of its love affair with the craft, 72 and Hoppy, an original Session IPA created in partnership with Bay City Brewing Company, reflects the hoppy beer culture and laid-back, easygoing vibe of the region. Clocking in at a light and drinkable 4.2 percent ABV, 72 and Hoppy features Mosaic, El Dorado and Ekuanot hops, which lend bright citrus notes to the IPA style that has become a calling card for San Diego beer.

The name also gives a nod to San Diego’s nearly perfect weather which hovers around 72 degrees year-round. Bay City Brewing Co. has created a beer that captures the spirit of San Diego in a pint glass - relaxed and refreshing, but also vibrant and full of flavor.

72 and Hoppy is available on tap at Bay City Brewing Co.'s tasting room as well as a number of other locations listed below. The beer is currently available only on draft but San Diego is hoping to offer cans for purchase in the near future.
