Dark Star Brewing Co. Hophead

Hoppy golden ale. Full bodied and full flavoured, Hophead is our mothership. Hoppy and golden with a distinct floral aroma and mighty elderflower hit from the Cascade hops. A stellar session beer.

Born underground in the cellar of a Brighton pub, Dark Star is a hobby that got out of control. Planned on the back of a beer mat with flair, grit and grey matter, from day one we made it our mission to deliver flavour to the hopheads.

We’ve come a long way since the days of carrying American hops across the Atlantic in a suitcase, but some things never change. Fuelled by hops and limitless imagination, we continue to escape the orbit of ordinary on our endless search for out of this world beer.

So climb aboard the good ship Dark Star as we go on a voyage of discovery, enjoying some stellar beers along the way.
