Hop-Up cola is a brand of soda in Rapture, established in 1949.[1] Though commonly mistaken for a bottle of beer, there is no ill effect to consuming large quantities of this beverage. Drinking soda will restore a small amount of EVE, and splicing the Extra Nutrition line of Gene Tonics will increase the yield of EVE each bottle gives.

Interestingly, this soda could be found in only one place in the first BioShock, in a trash can in Hephaestus where the game erroneously labels it "Coffee".
