Red Hill Hop Harvest 2012

Red Hill Brewery

Released April 14th, 2012

The first fruit of the sticky day in March when the Red Hill crew invites friends and beer lovers to the farm to pluck their homegrown hops from their bines. Just 24 hours after picking, lashings of Goldings and Willamette were thrown into the beer, with some dry-hopped and placed in casks to be served at the brewery via its handpump. The rest is out and about in bottles and kegs now. Unlike some of the hop harvest beers that come out at this time of year that try to allow just the hops the shine, it's a rounded English ESB style beer, so while you get fresh, floral hop notes and earthy flavours, this burnt copper coloured beer as as much about full-bodied malty goodness as it is those gorgeous green cones.
