Rick’s Near Beer Adds Rick’s Crispy Hop Water to its Non-Alcoholic Lineup

Founder Josh Hare perfected the hop blend for this new beverage, making Rick’s Crispy nuanced and citrusy

AUSTIN, Texas, June 28, 2023 — Rick’s Near Beer launches Rick’s Crispy Hop Water today, the third in its lineup of non-alcoholic craft beverages. Available to ship nationwide, Rick’s Crispy Hop Water is refreshingly hoppy and is 0 cal, 0 ABV.

“Hop water is delicious any time of day, either on its own for a bubbly refresher or mixed into a cocktail,” says Hare. “We tried dozens of hop varieties before we landed on the perfect blend. We use pure hop terpenes in our hop water, isolating the desired aroma and flavor compounds to ensure the consistency and flavor profile of each batch.”

Rick’s Crispy Hop Water is full of notes of tangerine, pineapple, and grapefruit and is the perfect way to relax during the hot summer months. It can be enjoyed as a standalone drink or used as a mixer in a delicious cocktail.

Rick’s was founded in 2022 by Certified Cicerone® Josh Hare, the entrepreneur behind Texas-based beverage brands Hops & Grain Brewing and Pint & Plow Brewing. Hare brings his craft brewing experience to Rick’s and created a unique blend of hops to give Rick’s Crispy a nuanced, citrus flavor.

Rick’s is now available at retail stores across Southern Texas. Find the nearest store with Rick’s Locator or order six-packs of Rick’s Crispy Hop Water ($8), Rick’s Hazy ($12) and Rick’s Original ($10) online at
