FRESH TO DEATH - Victoria's Harvest Celebration of Fresh Hop Beers
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 only available for a short time.
To celebrate this unique seasonal beer we are gathering together fresh hop beers from a bunch of BC's best breweries and offering them to beer lovers in this sampling event at Centennial Square in Victoria.
A $25 ticket grants:
- one (1) 4oz sampler glass
- three (3) tickets each good for one 4oz serving of fresh hop beer
We will announce the participating breweries soon, but rest assured there will be lots of great beers to choose from!
Food will be available to purchase on site - details coming soon!
