This weekend is the Portland Fresh Hop Fest at Oaks Amusement Park. Fresh hop beers are a harvest celebration for the bounty of hops available to Northwest brewers from the Willamette and Yakima valleys. Your friends at Hopworks will be at the fest with two delicious fresh hop beers.
First is our Powell Estate IPA featuring 84 pounds of fresh Willamette and Cascade hops grown on-site at HUB and hand-picked by an awesome team of volunteers. The second beer we’re pouring is Bitchin’ Camaro, a fresh hop lager made with Crystal hops from Goschie Farms in Silverton.
If you’re curious where your hops come from and how they are harvested, be sure to check out the following video featuring HUB’s head brewer Tom Bleigh and Gayle Goschie from Goschie Farms.
