Beer of the Week: Drake's Triple-Hopped Aroma Swap Beers

If you've ever turned on a television, you've seen beer commercials boasting all sorts of empty claims: “brewed longer!”, “cold filtered!”, “wide-mouth swirling vortex delivery system!”. Miller, in particular, is fond of saying “triple hops brewed.” For the uninitiated, this can be misleading — while the implication is that more hops are used in the creation of the beer, the truth is simply that hops are added to the boil at three points during the boiling process, standard procedure for most beer production. Based on the bittering character and hop aromas in Miller, they seemingly only add three hops … total. But when local Drake's Brewing Co. advertises a beer as triple-hopped, they're talking about something far more substantive.
