I’m again covering another wet hopped beer. They are notoriously fragile brews, and should be consumed as close to release as possible. One really cool thing about this beer, the Wolf Vine Wet Hopped Pale Ale, is that it is an infusion of Victoria grown hops. A regular Leapbeer reader and friend of the brewers in Victoria has some Cascade hops growing in his backyard. This year Sean Hoyne came by Kev’s place at harvest time and grabbed 9 pounds of the little beauties for this beer.
Here’s the hops plants during the summer before getting added to this beer.
Another really cool thing about this beer is the label. Even my wife wanted to know if this would be available in a format that we could put it up on the wall. Hoyne needs to be commended on the quality of their labels.
