How do you pronounce h2ops?

How do you pronounce h2ops? Is it H2-OPS, HOPS 2-0 or is it just H2OPS with the 2 being silent? Clearly whoever named this doesn’t understand good branding.  To me, it’s an unconventional drink and an unconventional brand name. A wise person once said, “call me what you want, just don’t call me late to dinner.” h2ops the brand is kind of like that.  We tend to call it H2-OPS but hey, its up to you.  I do have to give credit (or blame) to a friend who came up with the name after tasting it.

Perhaps I am dreaming, but If there were ever two hop waters on the menu, someone might just ask for a “hop water.” The waiter would then ask which brand? I sincerely hope that “H-2-O-P-S” will be the name awkwardly rolling off your tongue…with the 2 silent, or not.

My name is Paul Tecker and I am a long time home brewer, craft beer enthusiast and self-proclaimed hop aficionado. For nearly 15 years, I have been involved with the thriving natural and organic beverage industry and continue to be convinced that the future is bright for healthier food and beverages. One of my hobbies is growing hops in my back yard for home brewing. This led to the creation of my H2OPS brand hop water. Although I was born in the Pacific Northwest (where hops flourish) I now make my home in Southern California with my wife and two growing boys.
