New Brew – Wet Hop Pale Ale


Moments before picking, an hour before brewing!

Ed’s been busy brewing a batch of Wet Hop Pale Ale.  Brewed with freshly picked hops grown at Black Creek Pioneer Village, this is a special one-off batch!  Traditionally, beer is brewed with hops that have been dried.  Some of the volatile flavours apparent in fresh hops are lost during the drying, packaging and storing process that hops undergo before being sold to breweries.  Our Wet Hop Pale Ale can only be made once a year when the hops are ready for harvesting.  Ed’s hoping the flavours will be floral with hints of citrus, though we really won’t know until we open the cask!  Come down to Village beginning Thursday, September 15th to sample the wet hop pale ale or pick up a growler!
