Hop harvest season is a special time of year at Speakeasy. It's when we take hops that were picked and delivered to the brewery on the same day, and put them in an IPA. These hops are considered fresh or wet. Hops are normally dried after being removed from the vine so they can be preserved, but they lose some of their luster. Fresh hops are full of delicate vibrant flavors.
This year we're excited to release Wet Hopped Big Daddy IPA, made with Centennial and Chinook hops from Hops-Meister Farm in Clear Lake, CA. Centennial hops are floral and citrusy, while Chinook hops yield spice, pine, and grapefruit notes.
Wet Hopped Big Daddy IPA will beer will be served in our Tap Room for the first time on Friday, August 21. Enjoy happy hour pours all day ($4 - 12oz). Since it will also be Firkin Friday, expect a cask of Prohibition dry hopped with Mosaic, also known at Speakeasy as "Prosaic."
Chili Palace Catering will also be here serving some of their award-winning chili, three kinds, vegan included. Try the Totchos! (Chili cheese tater tots).
