HoP was established in 2013 on a very small budget. It started with a 1 barrel (31gallon) system and four 1 barrel fermenters. Coco Crusader was the first batch that was made. Beers, such as Coco Crusader, Lancelot, and Guinevere were the first that were showcased in pubs and restaurants in the Fresno and Visalia area.
Word got around that HoP was offering something new and unique to the Central Valley. To keep up with demand an upgrade was made to a 3 barrel system and six 3 barrel fermenters.
Tommy and wife/partner, Nora, decided that opening a HoP tasting room would be the next big step. There was a big demand for HoP beer and there was a drive to meet those demands!
The tap room in Clovis was launched on April 12, 2014. More and more craft beer lovers have discovered this great hangout where they can find the finest beer in town straight from the tap, fresh from the brewery!
The brewery, located in Sanger, has also opened its doors to the public Fridays-Sundays. Guests can tour the space as they sip on the freshest brews (and occasionally enjoy food from a food truck - check social media updates). The community loves coming out to the brewery and hanging out where they can have a rare sighting of the brewer himself!
Now with 8,500 square feet and a 15 barrel system HoP is still trying to keep up with growing demand. With a dedicated staff (the HoP family) this brewery continues to deliver the finest beers with the finest service.
