For Mother’s Harvest Wet Hopped IPA, a team of Upland brewers drove up to Indy High Bines in Indianapolis to help harvest their hops. As the harvester machine separated the hop cones from the leafy bine, we helped hand sort out any stray leaves as we watched a bright green pile of fragrant hop cones grow larger and larger. After reaching the 150 lbs quantity we desired (4 pounds per barrel of beer), the hops were delivered straight to Bloomington and we were mashing in our brew within a matter of hours.
In line with our other 2018 Side Trail Releases, this beer is a juicy, New England style IPA. The first, draught only release will feature Indy High Bines Cascade hops. The second batch, to be canned and released at the beginning of September, will feature Indy High Bines Chinook hops. Mother’s Harvest was brewed with the freshest possible ingredients as is meant to be enjoyed as soon as possible. Cheers! Show Less
