What is Fresh Hop Beer?

At the end of August each summer, many BC brewers leave their brew kettles and fermentation tanks behind to go on a field trip.

They travel to hop farms all around the province to collect fresh hops that are still wet and juicy from the harvest. Then they race back to their breweries to brew a batch of beer with those hops. These special fresh hop (or wet hop) beers come out a few weeks later and are available for a short time at the beginning of autumn.

These limited edition fresh hop beers only come once year – make sure to get your fill at Fresh to Death!
