We are proud to announce our Fresh Hop Beer Freshtival from October 21-24, 2021 at the Craft Beer Commonwealth in Gasoline Alley, Red Deer
. This event is open to everyone and will highlight Alberta beers made from AHPA members' hops.
Like last year, all the wet hop beers will be judged for fun and the winning brewery gets to take home a trophy.
We are adding two new categories to the competition:
- Category 1 - All fresh hop brew using only fresh hops
- Category 2 - Combination fresh hop/dry hop brew using both fresh and dried/pelletized hops
Each category will have its own trophy and the hop farm that supplied the winning brewery will have their hop farm listed on the trophy.
Let us know if you are collaborating with a brewery or breweries to create a fresh hop beer for the Freshtival. We will need to know what wet hops you are supplying and to which breweries. Please get this info to us as early as possible as we will need to plan with Commonwealth and get communication going with the breweries who are using your hops.
