Hop Theory: Beer Enhancing Sachets

$30,978

At Hop Theory we proudly hand-craft a variety of blends of hops, fruit peels, and natural favors enabling you to customize your favorite brew. We source only the finest, premium ingredients from across the country. With Hop Theory, an average beer becomes craft.

Our patent pending beer infusion method lives in a category of its own. We begin with a soilon woven mesh filter (sachet) that is derived from corn starch and is 100% biodegradable.  We then pack these "sachet's" with premium ingredients that are handmade, sourced, and manufactured within the U.S.  Each ingredient is prepared in a certain manner (dried and/or ground) to improve flavor and the rate of dispersion.  Finally, we individually wrap each sachet to preserve it's contents.

  • Cascade Hops add a tangy bitterness often associated with IPA's.  Hops are also used as a stability agent, interacting with the beer to create a nice frothy head.
  • Orange Peel adds a citrus flavor often associated with Belgian Witbier. 
  • Coriander Seeds add sweetness and give off a lemon top note.

With our first blend, we focused on a combination of cascade hops, orange peel, coriander seeds, and natural flavors.  It took a long time to create the perfect blend; more hops, less hops, more orange peel, more coriander, less coriander, etc. etc... Finally, Relativity was born.  As our first blend, we think we nailed it.  It is delicious & refreshing.

A single sachet transfuses up to four beers, so there is no need to open a new sachet after your first pint.  In fact, after the sachet becomes saturated, the transfuse time drops tremendously (from 3 minutes to 30 seconds). If you're feeling conservative, you can even store your used sachet in the fridge for later use.

In addition, each sachet contains around 5 calories per serving.  This means you can transform a light beer without it effecting your waistline (at least not as noticeably).

Our goal is to create a line of different flavors that suite the taste buds of every living beer drinker.  We are already experimenting with different combinations and ratios. No longer will you have to settle for what's being served or dream about the beer you could be having. Hop Theory lets you be the brewer; anytime and anywhere.  We have planned out a roadmap of blends that we are working to bring to market this year.

Our pledge layout is pretty simple.  Savings range from anywhere between $5 and $50.  Now is the perfect time to try our product, not to mention we're covering ALL shipping costs.

Our branded t-shirt and pint glass are also pretty slick, for those of you who spend a little extra. Obviously, we thank all of you in advance and will show our love by placing your name on our website, http://www.hoptheory.com/kickstarter/

Trust us, these will look much cooler in your hands... Did I mention FREE SHIPPING!?

"As a beer professional with over 20 years experience, I will admit that I was somewhat skeptical about the Hop Theory product. Upon tasting it though, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the flavors imparted by the sachet were clean, fresh, and did not seem out-of-place in the least bit. There are many ways in which this product could have gone awry in my opinion, and Hop Theory seems to have avoided them all."

— Fred Crudder, Director of Marketing and Hospitality - Heavy Seas Beer

 My name is Bobby Gattuso (CEO & Founder), I have been working hard to bring this exciting new product to market.  We have planned out each and every detail, meticulously fine tuning the perfect balance of ingredients to create our first blend, Relativity.  We are finally ready to begin production, but first, we need YOUR help.

Even if you don't spend a dollar, just viewing this page probably adds some sort of positive analytic we can use.  As with any new company, every little bit counts and we greatly appreciate your support.

In return, we will work hard to deliver on time, answer questions, and continue improving our product. Soon, everyone will be able to experiment, customize, and enjoy beer like they never have before.

      

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing:
Our blend requires expert knowledge to get it just the way we like. To minimize the risk of delays and quality demands we have chosen a blend company with nearly two decades of experience and quality assurance. If a problem does arise, we will first notify our customers of any delays and work hands on with the manufacturing company to resolve the issue as quick as possible.

After we develop our hand crafted artisan blends we move on to packaging. To minimize the risk of delays and quality demands we have chosen a co-packing company with nearly two decades of experience and quality assurance.

Fulfillment:
Shipping products correctly and on time can be a challenge for any small business. We use professional fulfillment services to manage our shipping needs. Again, if any issues arise, we will notify our customers and work to fix the problem as quick as possible.

Cheers!
