Port Orleans Brewing Co. Sends Hops 110,000 FT. Into The Stratosphere For New IPA



NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Port Orleans Brewing Co. has taken hops to the stratosphere! As part of a fun experiment (and for science of course!), the brewery team strapped Galaxy hops into a styrofoam cooler with GoPro cameras, a heat pack, a GPS, all tied to a parachute and weather balloon, to send it off to the stratosphere. After a few hours of waiting, the brewery team was able to recover the hops, bring them back to the brewery, and poured them into the fermenter to create Painted Space Galaxy IPA. Come have a little taste of space.

Painted Space is limited availability only at the brewery in New Orleans.
