For those of you that need the final push to purchase tickets for the Schlafly Fresh Hop Ale Festival, here’s the list of beers that will be available at the event:
Amalgamated Harvest Brown
A flavorful brown ale with moderately strong chocolate and caramel flavors balanced by a firm hop character. The beer was hopped in the kettle with Amarillo hop pellets, and then run through a hop back packed full of freshly picked Amarillo hops. Malty and hoppy, this beer is an easy drinking brown!
Amalgamated Wet Hopped Zoigl
An amber lager with peach-like flavors contributed by the freshly picked Amarillo hops. The fresh hops were added to the mash, and were the only hops added to the beer. This beer is a fresh hop version of our regular Zoigl served at The Stable. Clean, slightly malty, and infused with the goodness of fresh hops, this is a rare version of a rare beer!
Square One Brewery & Distillery
New Harvest IPA—
Our own unfiltered IPA “dry hopped” with fresh- from-the-harvest Amarillo hops. The hops were given 10 days to condition in the fermenter.
Six Row Brewing Company
Fresh-Hop Black India Pale Ale—
Brewed with 30lb of fresh Amarillo hops from Yakima Valley, lots of nice citrus notes in the aroma and flavor and a slight roasted character from the black malt. Dry finish and is completely black but intensely hoppy.
Highlands Brewing Company
Wet-Hopped American Brown Ale—
The American Brown Ale is a dark Brown Beer hopped with fresh Amarillo hops. It has a malty, rich, chocolate, caramel, Nutty, and toasty flavor. Brown Ale has a moderate hop flavor, with medium to high bitterness.
Our take on the Fresh Hop Beer was a Black Ale with Rye. We used a total of 40 lbs of hops in this brew which figures out to about 4 pounds of hops per keg. We used 9 pounds of Amarillo hops in the mash, 21 lbs in the hop back, then we dry hopped with 10 pounds of Amarillo pellets. This slightly spicy and fruity ale is a deceivingly drinkable dark ale.
Tap Room Hop Harvest Ale—
An American Pale Ale wet hopped with 25 lbs. fresh Amarillo (raw hops) and dry hopped with 10 lbs. Amarillo (raw hops) & 5 lbs. Simcoe (hop pellets)
Bottleworks Hop Harvest Ale—
An American Pale Ale wet hopped with Amarillo hops just days after harvest in Washington. Amarillo hops are related to Cascade hops and contribute a similar citrusy character to this beer.
