2008 was the year of the dreaded hop shortage. Hop prices went through the roof but most brewers were happy just to obtain a sufficient supply. We were down to our last supplies of a few varieties from this most notorious hop harvest crop and our idea was to concoct a final hop taste of 2008. 08 Hop Harvest Ale is a malty brown ale with a brisk hop punch. We combine four American hop varieties from the 2008 harvest to achieve this punch: Perle, Glacier, Vanguard, Sterling. Generous additions of Caramel and Chocolate malt round out the flavor imparting toasted and roasted notes.

Draught at Q-Brick. Deep amber with a low head. Flavors of grasses and caramel, chocolate. Nice balance between the sweet, tasty malts and the grassy hops. Sweet yet balanced. Good.
