Beer fans from 28 countries helped turn hip hops into a reality. During its Kickstarter campaign, over 1000 beers and breweries received votes for inclusion in the game.
You can still get your hands on the game - and help decide which beers feature in the next edition.
This is the most exciting time in the history of beer. Amazing new breweries have been established everywhere on the planet. There are 200,000 beers just waiting for you.
hip hops is an enjoyable and tactile way to navigate the world's 20,000 breweries. Build a deck of cards featuring just your personal favourite beers, discover astounding brews along the way and support your local breweries while you are at it.
How does it work?
You can collect the cards, trade them, play with them. In addition to traditional games, a unique, fun and strategic game has been developed just for these cards. Fast and easy to learn, hip hops is perfect for playing down the pub.
Each card features an original illustration of a beer. The cards are being printed by the world's leading trading card printer, Cartamundi, printers of Pokémon cards for over 20 years.
What is the longterm plan?
The vision for hip hops is to catalogue the world of beer.
One day you’ll visit a new city and pick up a deck of hip hops illustrated by a local artist. It will cover all the most interesting beers in that area, you’ll choose one, go to the brewery. There maybe you'll pick up its exclusive expansion pack, use it as a menu as you sample its beers over a game. You'll compare your collection of hip hops with the beer geeks in the taphouse, maybe trade a rare one. You’ll have updated your pocket collection of your favourite beers, and have some unusual cards to beat your drinking buddies with back home.
To achieve the longterm vision, hip hops is starting small, kicking off with some excellent themed decks. With enough of your support now, it will be viable to expand to your most popular regions and cities around the world in 2016.

Risks and challenges
hip hops has been designed from the ground up to be scaleable. I just need the supporters of the campaign to decide the beers that need to go in the game, so the design can be finished.
The production schedule will be finalised at the end of the campaign - if you want to see the latest outline schedule, email firstname.lastname@example.orgLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
