Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday all of those hop vines were sunning themselves on our porch, rife with glorious fragrant Cascade cones? Now the flurries are already flying and there’s a chill in the air, but that only means one thing around here: It’s time to release the 2013 Harvest Ale!
For those not familiar with our this annual Fall seasonal, it’s one that’s especially near and dear to our hearts. Why? Because this beer could be considered as local as we get. The hops used for this amber-colored ale are perennials that start climbing our front porch every Spring. We also directly involve the community in the beer they drink! Late summer, when the hops are good and hearty, we invite our customers to grab a bowl and start pickin’! We give you a free beer for every pound of hops you pick. Then, after the brew has finally finished fermenting, we keg it up in limited supply and offer our hop-pickin’ friends to swing down and enjoy the fruits of their labor, and thank them with another free pint!
So make a note to come by next summer and get involved in the beer-making process! Until then, join us this Friday, November 15 for our 2013 Harvest Ale release party. This beer is in very limited supply, so don’t forget to bring those growlers down and stock up.
We’ll see you Friday folks!
