Lolo Hops, a newly launched non-alcoholic sparkling beverage line, has announced the launch of three new flavor variations: Cascadia Field Blend, Pomelo Sage, and Yuzu Orange Blossom. All three beverages will be sold in classic 12-oz cans in select retailers as well as direct-to-consumer through the company's website.
Cascadia Field Blend is a definite standout flavor that features a unique blend of Ekuanot hops, Mosiac, and Northwest Chinook. As a result, the beverage delivers a sweet spring-like flavor that conjures the aromas of flowers, wet grass, and eucalyptus.
“Lolo is a natural evolution for Aurora, showcasing the complex and earthy flavors of our home in the Pacific Northwest in packaging that can easily be transported for any occasion,” said Victoria Pustynsky, founder and CEO of Aurora Elixirs.
