Behold, A Craft Brewery For Ants

Twenty years ago, a great man had a vision to create a “center for ants”. Now, Hop Valley Brewing Co. is reimagining Derek Zoolander’s dream, and it’s a brewery.

Hop Valley is releasing the world’s first “Brewery for Ants,” a miniature ant farm-inspired replica of its Eugene, OR-based brewery. And it, plus $5,000, could be yours

Many of the human-sized brewery features are included, like stools in the taproom, CryoHops freezing in the back, tiny beer tanks, tie dye couch and more. Unfortunately, ants and beer are not included.

Now through October 1, people can text “ANTS” to 90464 to enter for their chance to win the Brewery for Ants with a mini fridge hook-up and $5,000 towards a trip to visit the full-size brewery.

The Brewery for Ants is a fully functional ant farm, including the sand needed for ants to thrive. Ant enthusiasts are welcome and encouraged to introduce ants to the miniature brewery.

Fans of Guinness will have a new entry into the iconic line of stouts to drool over. 

The brand has added an all-new beverage in the form of Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee Beer

This nitrogen-based drink is an amalgam of roast coffee cold brew and Guinness’s bold stout flavors, along with the rich notes of espresso, chocolate, and caramel. 

While coffee-flavored, the Nitro Cold Brew beer will feature no added caffeine outside of the natural flavoring and boast a 4% ABV. 

Guinness’ Nitro Cold Brew Coffee Beer is now a permanent addition to the Guinness line of beverages. It made its debut in March and is currently expanding to more stores nationwide and internationally within the next year.
