Tuppers’ Revived with “Deep Pockets”

Hooray – Tuppers’ is back!

Tuppers’ Hop Pocket Ale and Pils have long been my favorite DC-area beers. Then in early 2007 Old Dominion was sold  to Coastal Brewing (a conglomerate involving Anheuser-Busch) and the sale resulted in Bob Tupper ending his contract brewing relationship with Old Dominion.

Every couple months I see Bob at a beer tasting and he gives an update on their progress toward finding a new contract brewing partner. Each update gives me reason for new optimism that the beers will be revived – but then months go by and there are still no Tuppers’ beers to be found.

That is about to change. Within the next month, Bob and Ellie Tupper will unveil a new creation: Tuppers’ Deep Pockets. Just a few days ago they brewed this Imperial IPA with Jason Oliver down at the Devil’s Backbone in Roseland, Virginia. They even dry-hopped this sucker with Virginian-grown hops!

According to the Tuppers’ website, 15 barrels of Deep Pockets will hit the market in about a month. Visit www.TuppersBeers.com for details. Woo-hoo! I can’t contain my glee!

    Good news! Does the name have ironic intent, considering that it was money matters that caused the interruption in brewing?

    “We’re calling it “Tuppers’ Deep Pockets” (because in these hard times we all need deep pockets)” is the quote from Tupper’s website which explains the name.
