About the name
We came up with the name 'Penari', a take on an old Dutch word for perplexity, often used in humorous context. It also nicely shuffles the two letters of my brother's first name and his brewing mate's surname. Hopstarter seemed like a logical choice for naming their first beer; a hoppy American I.P.A. It also pays homage to the kickstarted mopeds of yesteryear, something I couldn't resist featuring in a commemorative illustration!
