Hello Wet Hop Beer Fans!
Today kicks off our 3rd San Diego Wet Hop Weekend. We will be tapping more than 25 beers all brewed with hops grown in San Diego. All of the local hops were picked right off the bine and then used in these beers within 24 hours. These fresh hops have a high percentage of water weight when harvested hence the term “wet hops”. You can’t get any fresher than a local hop grower driving over hops on the day they were picked.
We will have an insane line up of beers. Look for the following on tap by 5 pm tonight. We have about 8 wet hop beers on tap for lunch today and we will have wet hop beers all weekend long. Stop by anytime and enjoy this once a year rarity. Some of these beers were made in very small batches so this might be the only chance to taste them outside of the brewery.

It is going to be an amazing weekend of locally hopped beers. Come out and support your local hop farmers and local brewers.
Tyson and I brought back a bunch of kegs from Silva Brewing from our road trip up north – stay tuned to the Facebook page to find out when they will hit our taps.
And we still have a few tickets left for our Burning Beard and Nickel Beer dinner on Sunday the 24th at 6:30 pm. Sign up at the pub with a bartender. We will have 5 wet hop beers at the dinner including a collaboration brew made with all local Neo Mexicanus hops.
That is your fresh hop news for now. I for one will be enjoying the wet hop fest at the pub tonight. We’ll see you soon for a fresh and tasty San Diego hopped beer. Cheers, Tom
