Hop Rider’s Wild Monkeys - wild characters, intensive beer.

A trio of monkeys has decided to be different! Life in the jungle? Too boring and uninspiring. The dream? A new, exciting life! All three are tired of spending their days eating bananas. Gorillas have always been known for their willpower and their strength. Nobody ever wanted to mess with them. And now, they have left the jungle behind and are living out their dream with a big dose of action.

Those are Hop Rider’s Wild Monkeys. Whether it is the leader Hop Rider himself dizzying heights as a professional pilot, the asphalt cowboy Malt Biker with gasoline running through his veins or the showy Yeast King refusing to hide his wealth. Now it’s time to bring some sensational drinks, which emphasize the forceful character of these gorillas, into orbit. Therefore, they made their next dream come true: creating beers which measure up to their expectations and stand out for their powerful flavour.
