Anything with mass has gravity, so if the extra hops and barely makes the steel reserve denser, then they are in fact increasing the gravitational pull of the beverage. They are not affecting the gravitational pull of earth (which seems to be what you're referring to), but the pull of gravity is a function of both masses.


Advertising Steel Reserve with high-minded, beer freak descriptors seems retardedly inappropriate for their demographic.
