Fresh Hop Freshtival is now underway
Okay, truthfully, it’s unlikely you could make it through a list of 120 different fresh hop beers, even if you’re doing taster trays and only enjoying samples of each. That’s a lot of beer! But 120 is the number that the folks at The Growler Guys in Seattle are hoping to hit over the course of this year’s Fresh Hop Freshtival. Last year, they poured over 90 different fresh hop beers, so 120 seems a reasonable goal.
Now through late October, The Growler Guys on Lake City Way will pour a robust selection of fresh hop beers from breweries across the region. Each day will see between 8 and 20 taps dedicated to pouring the freshest freshies.
You can order the beers in fresh hop flights for just $10.99 to maximize your variety. Of course, get full pours of anything that piques your interest. The Growler Guys takes pride in rotating through kegs quickly, making sure the freshest of the freshies are served as fresh as possible. It’s all about fresh. In some cases, the beer is tapped on the same day it was kegged.
In addition to all of that, the Fresh Hop Freshtival features an ongoing series of brewery spotlights, focused on individual breweries and their beers. Brewers will be there to answer questions, and so on. Keep an eye on The Growler Guys’ Facebook page to see what’s happening and who’s being spotlighted.
