What Are Fresh Hops?

Typically hops are sent to a kiln to be dried. Fresh hops are picked and used immediately for true hop flavors. With fresh hops as opposed to dried, you get scents of fresh cut grass and bright, delicate, juicy flavors.  Fresh hop beers are more mellow less concentrated versions of their dry hopped siblings. Their flavors are akin to using fresh herbs from your garden versus their dried equivalent.

Fresh green hops require 5-10 times the amount of a dried hop, therefore the beer should be consumed right after harvest.  Thirsty yet? Come taste the newest beer you can get, from local brewers and local farmers, right to your lips.  What are you waiting for?
