What is fresh hop anyway?
Fresh hops (also referred to as green or wet hops) are un-dried, raw hops picked from the bine and used in the brewing process usually within 24 hours. Hops are a perennial plant thus fresh hops are only available during the hop harvest season which lies around mid- August to late September in the northern hemisphere.
Trust us, it’s delicious.
And why should I care?
Because good beer matters. ‘nuff said.
So, this beer festival celebrates fresh hop beer?
Yup. You got it, amigo.
What if I don’t like beer?
You obviously haven’t tasted a fresh hop beer! Give it a try, little guy.
