At Wellington Brewery we’ve spent over three decades creating and sharing flavourful, award-winning craft beer. We’re beer lovers at heart but we also know that you can't drink beer all the time! And that’s where the inspiration for our Sparkling Hop Waters came from.
We set out to make a refreshing non-alcoholic alternative to beer that would be perfect for those times when a beer doesn’t fit - with lunch, at work, on the beach, or out boating - the opportunities are endless. When you’re craving something crisp and hoppy but you don’t want the alcohol, Sparkling Hop Water hits the spot.
It’s no secret that we love hops. And when we discovered a way to impart the bright citrus and vibrant pine notes of our favourite hops in sparkling water, we knew we were on to something. Our unique process involves adding hops directly to the boil with a touch of brewers yeast to help transform the hop flavours, bringing out the fruity flavour characteristics without the astringent hop bitterness.
Our two year-round Sparkling Hop Waters - Cascade and Chinook - feature 100% locally-grown Ontario hops with no sugar or artificial flavours added. We support local hop growers, including our friends over at Hayhoe Hops who grow all of the hops used in our core offerings. By sustainably sourcing our hops from local farmers we’re reducing greenhouse gas emissions while using some of the highest quality and best tasting hops we could find anywhere.
For a lot of people, their first sip of a Sparkling Hop Water is a welcome surprise - it’s crisp, it’s lively, and the vibrant citrus hop flavours shine without the hop bitterness. Each Sparkling Hop Water showcases a single hop variety, so you can discover the unique flavour characteristics of each hop and compare them side by side. And the best part? With no alcohol, no calories, and no carbs, Sparkling Hop Water is truly a drink that can be enjoyed anytime and anywhere.
