New Brew – Wet Hop Pale Ale


Moments before picking, an hour before brewing!

Our ever popular Wet Hop Pale Ale is ready!  Using hops grown at Black Creek and picked during our Hop event a few weeks back, Ed brewed the beer the same day the hops were picked.  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.  The beer has had a few weeks to mature and it features floral notes with a hint of citrus.  The Wet Hop Pale Ale is only available at our historic brewery at Black Creek Pioneer Village.  Come down to Village beginning Saturday, September 15th to sample our beer or pick up a growler!

As an added bonus, this Saturday is our 56th Annual Pioneer Harvest Festival which features an auction of handmade quilts, multicultural foods, music, a cider making demonstration, freshly made sausages and sauerkraut, stone ground flour and many other demonstrations and activities.  Check out the event listing here.
