Aurora Brewing Co.
A Note on This Beer
Before today, not a single drop from Aurora Brewing Company had ever left New York State.
And, that’s understandable — this nano-sized brewery only produces a few tiny batches each week, and the regulars seldom let a drop slip through their fingers.
Like Gene from Syracuse, who always SHOUTS the same thing on their Instagram whenever he's excited about a new brew: “Hachi Machi!!!”
The Aurora crew loved his catchphrase so much, they decided to brew an IPA in his honor! According to founder and head brewer Mark Grimaldi, “we didn’t tell him that we were naming the beer after him, and he totally blew his top when we released it. And, he happened to be there when we were making this [second] batch, so I brought him in and let him dry hop his beer.”
That’s right — Hachi Machi Gene himself actually helped hop up this brew with a mighty dose of Citra, Citra Cryo, Mosaic Cryo, Galaxy, and Mandarina Bavaria!
So, when you sip its raging flood of tangy tangerine, ripe pineapple, and juicy mango flavors, you can give a little toast to Gene. And a BIG toast to Mark and his crew, because they actually made this stuff.
If you want to find out why the locals are so excited about this little brewery, snag a pint of Hachi Machi. If that first sip leaves you at a loss for words, just read what it says on the can.

Very impressive. Very citrusy while bitterness kept in check. I am not an IPA fan but enjoyed this beer.
Good DIPA, just not blown away by it. Enjoyable still.
Can’t go wrong with Citra Mosaic and Galaxy hops!
On the drier side for a hazy IPA but that shows the bitterness and leaves you wanting another sip
A truly enjoyable beer - cloudy appearance and each sip accompanied with a perfect nose.
Fluffy juicy but a little hop burn
Bright, almost spicy
Daily corona battle. Vax day celebrations continue edition. Love the story of the naming. Pours super juicy hazy, goes down the same. Crazy juicy, touch of balancing earthiness. Creamy with a citrusy zing.
This is great!
Really enjoyed it! Nice and smooth with a little hop character.
Love the can. Good ipa also. Like the different hops.
Juicy smooth amazing !
Oranges, very little bitterness
