Story Behind the Label:
The legend behind Sargent Ezekiel Hop was created by the HBC team after drinking one too many IPAs. Ezekiel was leading his men into a furious battle when he realized they were running low on cannonballs. He looked around left and right for a solution and thanks to the infantry brewer there was an abundance of hops available since beer was safer than water to drink at the time. Ezekiel instructed his men to load up their cannons with hops and fire away. His bold strategy helped his men rein victorious and the creation of a fantastic beer, cheers Ezekiel!
