We’ve been storing up for winter and now it’s time to feed our hungry brewers! We are cracking open the freezer and bringing back Frozen Fresh Hops to enjoy some fresh hop ales during hibernation. Fresh hop ales in February?! You betcha! Move over hot toddies! There’s a new winter beverage in town.
Affectionately named ‘frozies’ by our beloved brewers, Frozen Fresh Hops are raw, un-kilned, flash frozen whole cone hops produced in a state-of-the-art BRC-certified food processing facility by our good friends at Wyckoff Farms. The flash freezing process directly following harvest helps retain the delicate nuances of un-kilned hops by protecting cell wall and lupulin gland integrity.
The greatest benefit of Frozen Fresh Hops is lower perishability, helping to maintain the special qualities of fresh hops during transit times and helping brewers receive a higher quality product upon arrival. But another amazing benefit…the ability to offer a fresh hop product months after harvest! We’ve stored these bad boys at below zero-degree temps for maximum quality, truly preserving the magic of fresh hop season.
The deadline to submit your pre-order is January 7, with shipments to begin the week of January 24. Frozen Fresh Hops – Winter Edition is available to US and Canada customers only. US shipments will be delivered via Next Day Air Parcel Shipment, and CA shipments will be delivered via Worldwide Saver. View the Product Overview sheet below for more information on the varieties offered, pricing and shipping.
Warm your winter neighborhood drinkers with the fresh aromas and flavors of the harvest season!
