Special Event – Hop Harvest

Brewmaster Ed Koren harvesting hops

Join us on Saturday, August 25th, 2012 from 11:30am to 2:00pm for our first Hop Harvest event and take part in this one-of-a-kind experience!  Our hops are nearly ready for harvest and that means it’s Wet Hop Ale time! Participants will help harvest the hops with Sandra Spudic, Head Gardener while learning everything she knows on growing and harvesting hops and barley. Once the hops are picked, each person will get to help Brewmaster Ed Koren add them to the brew, while Ed talks about the nuances of brewing with wet hops. The program will end with a guided sampling of three historic ales with our Beer Expert Andrew Gaboury and a tasting of flavourful breads and cookies made with our spent grains and brewer’s yeast. All participants get priority purchasing on the limited edition Wet Hop Ale once it is ready (approximately 2 weeks after brewing). The Hop Harvest event costs $30/person (+ HST) and includes admission to the Village.  Call Customer Service at 416-667-6295 to purchase tickets for this great event (limited tickets available)!  Participants must be 19 years of age or older.
