“Why does the Easter bunny drink beer?"/"To get his hops.”

Beer has hops, and there’s an Easter bunny riddle (posted on Twitter in various forms since at least 2013):

Q: Why does the Easter bunny drink beer?
A: To get his hops.

India pale ale (IPA) is a hoppy beer style. A riddle was posted on Reddit—Jokes on April 16, 2017:

Q: Why does the Easter Bunny drink IPAs?
A: He loves the hops.

Wikipedia: Hops
Hops are the flowers (also called seed cones or strobiles) of the hop plant Humulus lupulus. They are used primarily as a flavoring and stability agent in beer, to which they impart bitter, zesty, or citric flavours; though they are also used for various purposes in other beverages and herbal medicine. The hop plant is a vigorous, climbing, herbaceous perennial, usually trained to grow up strings in a field called a hopfield, hop garden (nomenclature in the South of England), or hop yard (in the West Country and U.S.) when grown commercially. Many different varieties of hops are grown by farmers around the world, with different types being used for particular styles of beer.

Wikipedia: India pale ale
India pale ale (IPA) is a hoppy beer style within the broader category of pale ale. It has also been referred to as pale ale as prepared for India, India ale, pale India ale, or pale export India ale.

If you were a rabbit, you’d probably enjoy IPAs because of the hops. #BaggerDaves #foodforthought
