Sisters, Ore. — Oregon’s award winning Three Creeks Brewing Co. is proud to announce the return of their annual fresh hop release, Conelick’r Fresh Hop Ale, in 22 oz bottles this week.
Each fall Three Creeks Brewing Co. works with local Oregon hop farmers to celebrate the hop harvest by creating a range of unique fresh hop beers utilizing unkilned, freshly harvested hops that go from farm to brew kettle within hours. A special release that happens only once a year!
The 2016 iteration of TCBC’s annual fresh hop ale features over 900 lbs (15 lbs per barrel!) of wet Centennial hops from BC Hop Farms in Woodburn, Oregon. The hops go from farm to brew kettle in 4 hours. The abundance of hop resins from the unprocessed fresh hops create a spiciness along with the classic orange rind notes of the fresh Centennial. This is a truly unique and indigenous seasonal beer that captures the majesty of Oregon’s hop harvest, in a bottle.
- Malts: Rahr 2-Row, Light Crystal, Carapils
- Hops: Fresh Centennial from BC Hop Farms
- Yeast: American Ale
The hop harvest celebration continues as Three Creeks Brewing hosts the 7th Annual Sisters Fresh Hop Festival on Saturday, October 1, in the Village Green Park in Sisters, Oregon. The Festival will run from noon until 8 p.m. Twenty-four Northwest breweries will feature a variety of fresh hop ales while raising funds for the American Cancer Society.
