Fresh hop beers are continuing to make their debut and the latest two options are from Montavilla Brew Works. The Portland, Oregon brewer has announced the release of both Fresh Hop Flam Tap and Fresh Hop Stratamacue IPA.
Fresh Hop Flam Tap IPA is brewed with 200 pounds of fresh Centennial hops from Goschie Farms in Silverton, Oregon and is one big citrus bomb! This Northwest IPA sits at 6.3% ABV and is said to be super drinkable. The other option, Fresh Hop Stratamacue IPA is brewed with 100 pounds of fresh Strata hops from Goschie Farms and just for fun, the brew team dry-hopped this beer with tons of Citra and Mosaic hops. Lots of grapefruit, dark herb, mango and stonefruit notes and sits at 6.5% ABV.
Both Fresh Hop Flam Tap and Fresh Hop Stratamacue IPA were canned yesterday and are now available in 4-pack, 160z cans at the brewery, New Seasons, Market of Choice and at many bottle shops around town.
Montavilla Brew Works is open Tuesday – Thursday from 3:00-8:00pm, Friday – Saturday from 3:00-9:00pm and on Sunday from 3:00-8:00pm.
