‘Tis the season for fresh hops. There’s no where else like the Cascadia and the Pacific Northwest when it comes to ripe citrus, piny alpha hops. To celebrate this year’s harvest, The Lucky Lab is encouraging you to get your savory homegrown strobiles together and bring ’em over to their Hawthorne Beer Hall on September 2nd starting around 3PM. Hops supplied will be used to brew The Mutt, a special hop mix-up brew brewed by brewers Ben Flerchinger, Abby Sherrill, and Casey Lyons. This annual co-operative picking is a great gathering of beer and hops lovers. Complimentary pitchers of beer will be provided and wort-brined chicken wings will be ready around 5PM.It is encouraged that pickers wear long sleeves and gloves.
Help the Lucky Lab break last year’s record of 215 pounds of fresh picked hops (which doubled 2008’s total). Tell your friends and bring those hops!
