Colorado Brewers Guild Announces Fresh Hop Beer Lineup

DENVER — Fresh hop season is here! The Colorado Brewers Guild (CBG) is thrilled to announce that more than 15 independent Colorado breweries will be offering fresh hop beer this month. Fresh hop beers have been a cherished tradition for many breweries and they can only be produced this time of year. When it comes to hops, beer is typically brewed with dried hop pellets.  Fresh hop (also known as wet hop) beers, however, are unique in that whole cones are harvested and then used within 48 hours.

From a Pale Ale using hops flown straight in from Paonia to a beer with fresh Neo Mexicana hops from the Denver Botanic Gardens, there is no question that Colorado breweries are getting creative this fresh hop season. The following CBG member breweries will be offering fresh hop beers this month:

  • Bristol Brewing Co.
  • Bruz Beers
  • Call to Arms Brewing Company
  • Capitol Creek Brewery
  • Elevation Beer Co.
  • FlyteCo Brewing
  • Green Mountain Beer Company
  • Holidaily Brewing Company
  • Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery
  • Joyride Brewing Company
  • Little Machine Beer
  • Locavore Beer Works
  • Moonlight Pizza & Brewpub
  • Odell Brewing Company
  • Strange Craft Beer Company
  • Strong House Brewery
  • Tivoli Brewing Company
  • And more to come!
