“We couldn’t be happier with the progress we’ve seen and the partnerships we’ve formed in just the last three months,” said Brandon Dawson, CEO of 48th Parallel. “We believe in this product, and we are excited to share it with lovers of hops in Dayton and the surrounding areas.”

Hopwater™ is a Cincinnati-made craft soda with the pleasing bitterness and aroma of hops. Each of its four flavors—Original, Grapefruit, Lime and Ginger—is 48 calories per 12-ounce serving and 48 IBU. The pleasingly bitter sparkling water is a healthy quinine-free alternative to tonic water, and can be enjoyed on its own or as a cocktail mixer.
