Redesigned from the ground up, Pinter is packed with some serious innovation, featuring never-before-seen features and world-first technology. One we're most proud of is the most groundbreaking, the Hopper.
For the first time ever, freshly-hopped beer at home isn't just a pipe dream. The patent-pending Hopper adds extra hops to the Fresh Beer inside the Pinter under pressure after fermentation. Hopping here at the optimal point in the brewing process, without losing any of the naturally produced CO2 inside the Pinter, this hop shot opens the door to maximum flavor and maximum freshness. It's Fresh Beer to the max.
The hop aroma and flavor mellows during fermentation. By hopping again post-fermentation, the Hopper opens up never-before-seen hopportunities (we couldn't resist) to take Fresh Beer even further. But this freshly-hopped breakthrough belongs exclusively to the range of Hopper beers.
Hopping (or dry-hopping) in beer production boils down to adding more hops later on in the brewing process. There's more than one way to do this, though. We have chosen secondary fermentation, where Fresh Beer is infused with hops post-fermentation, but pre-conditioning.
The first ferment is when most of the beer's carbonation and alcohol are created, with flavor and character settling and setting up for the perfect taste and pour as it conditions.
