Brewed by Barley Johns Brew Pub
Wet hop ales are some of the freshest beers of the year. Most hops are generally dried, shredded and pelletized before they are used in beer. Once a year, during harvest, fresh hops are harvested, over-nighted to breweries all over the US, and thrown fresh (and wet) into the brew kettle or brite tank. A couple of weeks back we received 10lbs of fresh Amarillo and 10lbs of fresh Centennial hops. They were brewed into a gentle, slightly sweet pale ale designed to act as a bright canvass to highlight the hops’ character. The wet hops lend the beer a special resiny taste with a refreshing bitterness, floral notes, and plenty of spice with just a hint of bubblegum, and a long hoppy finish.
