Cricket Hill recalls foamy Hopnotic IPA

Written by 

Cricket Hill Brewing has recalled 200 cases of its flagship India pale ale because the beer is overcarbonated.

The brewery announced the recall of Hopnotic IPA Monday morning in an email blast to its followers and apologized for the inconvenience that the production and packaging error caused.

Cricket Hill urged consumers to return any of the beer in question to the place of purchase or to contact the brewery.

"The distributors, starting today, are taking it off the shelves, and the replacement beer is being picked up today. By the end of the week, all that bad stuff should be off (the shelves)," brewery founder Rick Reed says.

The 200 cases went to stores in North and South Jersey, as well as the Hudson Valley in New York. Draft packaging of Hopnotic IPA has not been affected.

The production error comes amid some brewer changes at the 12-year-old Fairfield (Essex County) brewery; Rick say the brewery has never had to recall beer before.

"You pour it into a glass, and it just foams up. You try to take a swig, and it's like champagne. It's that carbonated," he says. "It got away from us. I want (consumers) to realize we want to make it up them."
