Ska Brewing: Modus Hoperandi, Ep. 124

Hop heads rejoice, Modus Hoperandi has a beer for you! At Beer America TV, we’ve had our share of hoppy beers, some bitter, some almost sweet. I would venture to say that Ska Brewing has found a nice middle road with Modus Hoperandi! A deep orange color, this beer hits you with citrus and pine with a little bitterness thrown in for good measure! What also makes this beer unique is that it’s canned, something we’ll be seeing a lot more of in the future!

    Nice show! I enjoyed an Sierra Nevada Torpedo clone watching this vid.
    I put that on my list for “beers to look out for” at the Beverage Warehouse in Winooski VT.
    Here in Canada, our Gov seems to think THEY know what a good beer is. Imagine that!

    Cheers guys and keep em coming!

    Love Modus…

    “Lip Up Fatty” is a reference to the British ska band Bad Manners, Fronted by the great Buster Bloodvessel.

    Durango is a sweet town, SW Colorado. Four breweries in a town of under 20,000 people; Ska, Carver, Durango, and Steamworks.

    Keep up the good work! If you can find any Hair of the Dog brewing from Portland, OR, get it… The brewer is an ex-chef, could be interesting to show the elements of brewing similar to cooking as a topic, how this is truly influencing the craft brewing community. Cheers!

    Hey Guys,
    Great show! I need to get it direct in the house more often, but I just get too jealous because I live in Okinawa, Japan. I am brewing my own beer here, but I do try AS MUCH AS I CAN when I get stateside. I really enjoy your reviews, they help me pick some awesome brews when I get back! On t=your video for Ska Brewery, I am assuming you read the list on the can and it had HHH. I believe it stands for Hash House Harriers. They are a “Drinking club with a running problem.” They do fun runs around an area, chasing “Hares” who make a trail that you have to follow while trying to catch them. When you finish, you drink some beer. This is a great ending to a nice run! Thanks for your show, I learn a lot and get motivated to make, buy, and dring some great brews! Cheers! Tim

  • Joseph Allen Said,

    Hello guys I watch your show. I love beer, my favorite styles are Belgium tripels, Imperial IPA, and I love Guinness. I ve had many of the beers you’ve reviewed and their are many I have, not like ska. I live in the city of Buffalo, NY, and have great selection here. I wish the beers like ska or mother earth or many other more western beers would come to me. I’am glad to know there is so much still to try out and I’m gonna keep watching. Will review a rye beer? I homebrew, rye beer is the next beer to make for us. __Joseph

    Ska is doing really great beers, and Modus Hoperandi is a top tier IPA for sure! Joseph, we have reviewed at least one rye beer, you can find it here
