Fresh Hop Pale Ale / 5.6%
Packaged on May 6, 2020
Featuring Centennial hops grown by Silver Springs Hops & Permaculture Farm in the Adelaide Hills.
Once a year we brew a beer using fresh hops picked in the Adelaide hills just hours before they are delivered and added straight to the brew.
This year we chose to feature delicious Centennial in a Pale Ale style beer.
Centennial owes its existence to a mix of Brewer’s Gold, Fuggle, East Kent Golding and Bavarian hops. Developed in 1974 and released in 1990, Centennial was pioneered by Charles (Chuck) Zimmerman and S.T. Kenny at Washington State University. It is at times referred to as super Cascade because of its similar citric characteristic. Centennial is a much-celebrated hop in its versatility with its depth of bitterness and forward aroma — two characteristics that balance each other beautifully.
Due to a downturn in trade caused by restrictions around COVID-19 we have chosen to package only a small amount of this beer. Get it while it’s fresh!
