From rubber mulching to rubber farming, it’s been a wild ride for farmers and ranchers across the country.
In the first half of 2017, more than 1,000 new products and techniques were introduced, according to the US Department of Agriculture.
This year, the number of products that are being added to the food supply is expected to be roughly the same as last year, with the industry expected to add $1.7 trillion to the economy by 2021.
Rubber soul Brewing is a new American brand that aims to revolutionize the way that we brew our own beer.
Rubber Soul Brewing was launched in February 2017 by local food and beverage entrepreneur Tom Lopatin, who has been a craft beer fan for years.
“I was looking for a brewery to create something that was really simple and that I could really learn how to brew,” he says.
“My friends were saying, ‘You have to make it easy.
You have to be easy to use.'”
He took his ideas to the local craft beer community and got the idea for Rubber Soul.
Lopatin began his brewing journey in 2012 when he decided to try his hand at a home brew business.
His first batch was a disappointment, and he was looking to get back to basics.
“It was all about getting into the recipe, getting into all the details,” he recalls.
“But I kept trying and it wasn’t working out.”
Lopaton was intrigued by how simple it was to make beer and thought he had found his calling.
He began to work with local beer brewers, including one who gave him a sample of their craft beer.
It turned out that Lopatos beer tasted nothing like the beer he had tasted at home.
“So I went to the guy and said, ‘Can I try a beer that I can make with my own ingredients?'”
After several attempts, he found a recipe that worked well for his needs and tastes.
He also learned how to make a batch of beer using only ingredients from his local grocery store.
“We made about a barrel of beer and the ingredients we used were everything I was looking at,” he adds.
The results were fantastic, and in the end he decided it was time to go back to home brewing.
“This is my life now,” Lopats says.
The Rubber Soul brand has quickly become one of the most successful craft beer brands in the United States, with more than 40,000 sales and counting.
Lopeatin has a few more products on the way, including a new beer called Black Rubber.
The new brew is being released this week in California and Oregon, and will be available nationwide.
Lopes Black Rubber beer is light, smooth, and flavorful with a light body and refreshing aroma.
The beer was named after Lopeatas Black Rubber, an African-American pioneer who fought for civil rights and who founded the San Francisco chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union in 1866.
“Black Rubber” is a tribute to the Black Panther Party founder Huey Newton and a tribute for all of the African-Americans who served in the armed forces during the Civil Rights Movement, he says, adding that he plans to continue to brew his Black Rubber beers.
“The reason why Black Rubber is such a successful beer is because it’s very simple and clean,” he explains.
“And it tastes great.”
In addition to the new beers, Rubber Soul is also working on a new product that will offer consumers a more flexible brewing experience.
It will be called Rubber Soul Beer and will offer more options than the other offerings on the market.
“There are so many options that people are looking for,” Lopeats CEO says.
He says that Rubber Soul has the ingredients for more than 150 different beer styles and will have a range of beer options available for customers who want more variety in their beer choices.
He hopes to bring the Rubber Soul name to the craft beer market in the future.
“In the near future, we will be releasing a range, starting with our flagship brew, Rubber soul,” he promises.
“Our goal is to become the most widely-available craft beer brand in the world.”
Rubber Soul Brews Rubber Soul beer can be found in California, Oregon, California, Texas, Texas and Florida.
It also has a wide variety of other beers on tap in a variety of markets, including New York, Ohio, Connecticut, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York City, Washington, D.C., and the United Kingdom.
Lops brand has also expanded into other markets.
In addition, the company recently released Rubber Soul Organic IPA, a light, citrusy IPA that tastes great and has a refreshing hop flavor.
