Victoria’s Harvest Celebration of Fresh Hop Beers

Saturday, October 1, 2016 – 1:00pm to 6:00pm
Centennial Square, Victoria
Generously sponsored by Liquor Plus.

Event Details:

At the end of August each summer, many BC brewers leave their brew kettles and fermentation tanks behind to go on a field trip. They travel to hop farms all around the province to collect fresh hops that are still wet and juicy from the harvest. Then, they race back to their breweries to brew a batch of beer with those hops. These special “fresh hop” (or “wet hop”) beers come out a few weeks later and are only available for a short time.

To celebrate this unique seasonal beer we are gathering together fresh hop beers from a bunch of BC’s best breweries and offering them to beer lovers in this sampling event at Centennial Square in Victoria.

The Beer

We’re excited to be pouring 20 fresh hop beers from some of BC’s finest breweries, including local, Vancouver Island and Mainland operations:
