Schooner Ale Dry Hop

Schooner Dry Hop

Ale with Dried Hops

Schooner Ale was first made as an educational beer, to showcase the difference between hops that are processed for storage (dried and pelletized) and the Wet Hops (fresh and whole) that we use once a year during harvest in late summer. Liking the base of the seasonal Schooner Ale with Wet Hops, we decided to brew the beer during the other eleven months that we can’t get northern hemisphere Wet Hops. It is also interesting to compare the difference in flavor and aroma between the same hops that have been treated differently but used in the same base beer. Golden color with a frothy white head that retains well and leaves layers of lacing. Aromas of orange zest, grapefruit pith and pine. Light flavor of toasted grains and cereal. Well balanced with the hops taking a slight edge in dominance, making it bitter but not over-bearing. We showcase this 100% Cascade Hop Beer with a very light and crisp grain bill including a small portion of rice.
