Fresh Harvest Beer Festival Cancelled
Fresh Harvest Beer Festival
About this Event
Using freshly harvested hops, the second Fresh Harvest Beer Festival 2020’s edition will see some of NSW’s most popular breweries showcase their unique beers brewed with freshly picked Australian hops.
Beer lovers and the beer curious will be able to enjoy fresh hop brews, which are on offer only once a year. “Fresh hops provide a very different taste to beer, and due to the tight timeline of moving from farm to glass, fresh-hop beers are rarely produced,” explains Vincent de Soyres, brewer and co-founder of Frenchies Bistro and Brewery, which is hosting the festival.
“During annual harvest, most hops are dried out in a process that extends their shelf-life but modifies there flavour. Undried hops are used within 24 hours of picking. They impart a fresher aroma that is more floral in flavour and texture. They truly make unique beers,” de Soyres says. Each brewery will brew a new beer and release it on that day for the first time.
