Top Hops is Ted Kenny’s dream come true. He can blame it all on the St. Sebastian Blonde he tried way back in 1989, an experience which rocked his beer world. In 2005 after 10+years toiling in the financial markets, Ted joined AB In Bev where he worked with the European and craft brands, ultimately focusing on Stella Artois. His tenure provided him with an invaluable education on the brewing process and the business of beer. The idea for Top Hops unfolded in 2010 as all great ideas do, over dinner and beers with friends. Ted understood implicitly that consumer tastes were changing and that there was a hole in the market for beer lovers. It was a memorable evening and the plan was hatched.
