The hop bounty has been hitting local breweries and Hopworks Urban Brewery is that latest to join in the fresh hop frenzy with the release of three fresh hop beers this season. This year’s hop harvest will bring Nonstop Fresh Hop, Estate IPA, and Fest of Fury all on draft. The first of the three fresh hop beers, Nonstop Fresh Hop, is now available at both Hopworks locations along with a limited keg supply in its distribution channel throughout the Pacific Northwest. By the end of September, HUB will also release Estate IPA and Fest of Fury.
The three beers highlight HUB’s relationships with local hop farmers who share a passionate pursuit of environmental stewardship. The first beer available is Nonstop Fresh Hop, which features organic Fuggle hops from Leavy Farms in Aurora, Oregon. The beer is a variation of Nonstop Hef Hop, HUB’s year-round hoppy session wheat.
Estate IPA is a fresh hop version of their award-winning Hopworks IPA. The beer contains Willamette and Cascade hops grown in the hop yard at Hopworks Urban Brewery, and is supplemented with an experimental hop variety, X17, from Leavey Farms.
Fest of Fury gives a German-style Märzen beer a seasonal spin from the Pacific Northwest with freshly harvested, Salmon-Safe Willamette hops from Goschie Farms in Silverton, Oregon.
