Slake Your Thirst with Wet Hop Ales

Hop harvest is a joyous time for brewers who rush freshly picked, un-kilned hops from bine to brewhouse, retaining oils and contributing delicate, almost ethereal flavors.

Brewers sourced locally from North Bay (Alexander Valley Hops, Blossom and Bine, Crane Ranch Hops and Redwood Hill Farm / Capracopia) and south of the Bay Area (Akiyama Hopyards and Hollister Hopyard), as well as some road trips to Oregon to Crosby Hops  and Indie Hops' Goschie Farms. 

Pick up these limited brews while you can. Click a profile to see each brewery's latest releases (wet hop release dates will vary).

San Antonio-based Weathered Soul Brewery invited the world's craft breweries to produce a riff of its Imperial Stout recipe in support of Black Lives Matter -- and a movement was born. Black Is Beautiful beers not only make a statement with their bold taste, but are fundraisers for local racial justice programs. Look for, pick up and compare these releases from craft brewers across the Bay -- and the world. Learn more about this worldwide collaboration, and see all participating breweries, here
