Coffee Hopz, a beer made through a collaboration between Altoona-based Sheetz and Rusty Rail Brewing in Mifflinburg is sold out in most locations.

If you didn’t have a chance to try Sheetz coffee beer, you are most likely out of luck.

In less than one month, the brew – Project Coffee Hopz – is about to be tapped out.

Sheetz’ website shows the beer is sold out in most of its locations and all Western Pennsylvania stores.

“At this moment, there are no plans to make or sell more Project Coffee Hopz,” Sheetz spokesman Nick Ruffner said in a statement.

He said another product launch is coming soon.

Altoona-based Sheetz collaborated with Rusty Rail Brewing Company of Mifflinburg to unveil the convenience store’s first ever craft beer, Project Coffee Hopz, a limited edition coffee bean IPA.

The convenience store chain announced the beer in early May and began selling it May 21.

Customers initially requested the brew, Ryan Sheetz, assistant vice-president of brand strategy at Sheetz, told the Tribune-Review at the announcement.

Customers had the opportunity to try and buy the limited-edition beer on May 16.

The drink was available in 55 stores across Pennsylvania and included the Bethel Park, Canonsburg, Moon, Natrona Heights, Ohio Township, and Sewickley locations.

It was $7.99 for four-packs of 16-ounce cans.

Sheetz said they have worked for years to make beer available in the convenience stores across Pennsylvania. It is now available in more than 140 stores across the state.

This recipe was brewed with Sheetz Brothers Sumatra coffee beans, and the IPA blend features “light and floral notes with a subtle coffee presence.”
