Hop Federation’s Famous Green Limousine Returns!

Hop Federation Green Limousine

Hop Federation’s much awaited limited release, Green Limousine Fresh Hopped IPA with Nelson Sauvin, is here.

The Green Limousine delivers fresh Nelson Sauvin hops to Hop Federation once a year. Coming from just down the road, they’re as fresh as it gets. The result is this beautiful golden brew. Super fresh and super delicious.

Chief Brewer, Simon Nicholas, says “We’re extremely proud of our Green Limousine. It’s really made a name for itself, consistently selected by the likes of Michael Donaldson as a Fresh Hop beer to look out for each year. This year, it’s the second of three fresh hop beers we’re releasing, so keep an eye out!”

He adds, “Fresh hop beers are always a highlight because they change year on year, depending on harvest. This means you’ve really got to tweak your recipes to work with the hops you’ve got and that’s a super fun challenge.”

Now available to order in 440ml cans. For details on pricing and ordering information, contact brews@hopfederation or visit
