Fresh Hops


So Fresh and So Green

There’s nothing quite like fresh hops – the aromas they impart, the flavors they deliver, the beers they produce. For brewers, farmers, and craft beer drinkers alike, fresh hop season brings an air of anticipation and ceremony, a palpable excitement born from the short-lived opportunity to brew with whole-leaf hops hours after they’re picked.

Fresh hops – also referred to as green or wet hops – are raw, un-dried hops picked from the bine and then immediately used for brewing (typically within 24 hours). Available once a year during our harvest from mid-August to late September, Crosby fresh hops can be preordered throughout the year.
