While I can succinctly and honestly say that Sorachi Ace isn’t my favorite hop in the world, it was absolutely fascinating to see just what all of these breweries came up with this year at the Schlafly Fresh Hop Beer Festival.  What was even better was when this festival first came about three years ago, there were only 5 breweries that participated.  This year we had 15 breweries pouring beer.  Just phenomenal.

For those of you that weren’t able to attend, here are a few photos from the event:
