Tuppers' Hop Pocket Brewing Company and the St. George Brewing Company have agreed to work together to return Tuppers' Hop Pocket Ale and Tuppers' Hop Pocket Pils to the market. The tentative target date is late May. The Ale will return first, followed shortly by the Pils-- both will be on draft before they return in bottles. Initial distribution will focus on the Washington metropolitan area, but plans are to expand to the area in which the beers were formerly available and then expand to further markets.
This is exciting news indeed. Hop Pocket Ale was frequently available locally but the Pils was seldom seen. I look forward to seeing both of these beers, and perhaps other beers from Tuppers, later this Summer.

This announcement was initially made yesterday to the DC-Beer mailing list. Thanks to the ever-alert Thomas at "Yours For Good Fermentables" for letting us know that the Tuppers web site had been updated with the details.
