Shout About London

Jun 28, 2019

For the first episode of the new series, we bring you Ludi and Ben Hopkinson, founders of the skate and beer brand Hop King. They talk us through creating their own pale ale recipe, aligning themselves with their favourite sport, and finding a site to launch their very own skate park – Hop Kingdom. They’re young, they’re creative, they know how to take a fall and get back up and, as you probably guessed, they do love a beer.
