What’s not to love about Ska Brewing? The rudeboy name, the comic book artwork and massive amounts of hops in their beers. Co-founder Dave Thibodeau says: “The difference between big beer and craft beer is Love.” Their flagship beer is, of course, Modus Hoperandi IPA, a monster of a hop bomb they describe as, “a mix of citrus and pine that will remind you of the time you went on a vision quest with your native American cousin and woke up in a pine-grove full of grapefruit trees.” Indeed. See, what’s not to like about that.
