Welcome to The Flight of The Hopper website, an internet project devoted to the unique marriage of flight simulation and beer. The Hopper is a simulated aircraft on a simulated journey whose real crew consumes real brewed beverages from around the world. Intrigued, or just plain puzzled? For more information, read about our mission.
Are Here: Tunis, Tunisia
the adventure begin! The Hopper has reached the
African continent with all the beer that could be loaded
into her belly. Beer here is scarce, but the crew will
make due with the collection of brews that they've stored
away for just such an occasion.
The journey begins here
in Tunisia with plans to progress counterclockwise around
the continent, testing the long-legs of the Pilatus
in order to make it home before FSX is released. That
means some looooong flights are on the horizon. Stay

the crew is admittedly smitten with the American
brewery, but with good damn reason. Check out the
review of DFH's "OLde School" barleywine
ale and it's Earthshattering 15% alcohol content.
10, 2006 - La Rossa is a surprising Mediterreanean
treat, bringing back the plesant memories of Skullsplitter
and bringing hope to the crew that there is some
really, really good beer in Italy. Read
about it here...
