Media Advisory: Fresh Hop Festival Returns October 14th

Who: The Colorado Brewers Guild, a non-profit trade association representing Colorado craft breweries and brewpubs, and Falling Rock Tap House will host the 12th annual Fresh Hop Festival.

What: The annual Fresh Hop Festival shines a light on beers made with fresh hops. Fresh hop beers are made with whole cone hops that connect with the wort within 24 hours of harvest. These beers are seasonal, fresh and delicious. Denver’s Fresh Hop Festival is the perfect fall event for any hop head. This year’s festival has a new format: no tickets, instead beers will be sold by the glass with 50 cents per pour donated to the Colorado Brewers Guild.

Why: Fresh hop season is a special one, and a short one at that. This festival celebrates beers brewed with fresh hops from the vine, which deliver an unparalleled hop character. As one of the main ingredients in beer, whole cone hops should be celebrated. Expect the unexpected at this festival. Not every beer will be bitter and hop forward, but all will be super exclusive with varied levels of hoppy flavor, color and style.
