OK, hailing from the land where 75% of the US hops are grown, its only fitting that we have the "Fresh Hop Ale Festival". (tommorow night) Hops have 24 hours to go from vine to brine in order to qualify for this. It's the only place in the US where this can happen.

Brews
This year, we'll invite 16 of the top microbreweries from the Pacific Northwest and northern California to participate in our festival. Try all the Fresh Hop Ales (and ambers, hefeweizens, stouts and more), plus food, wine, homebrew demos, a cigar tent & dancin' in the streets to bands The Blue Tropics & The Shreds!

Fresh Hop Ale Competition
For a brew to be considered a "fresh hop ale" for the festival, it must be produced with hops that were picked no longer than 24 hours prior to brewing. At the fest, breweries compete for first, second and third place "fresh hop ale" as well as a "most pours" award to crown the crowd favorite. Local & expert judges meet just prior to the festival to rate the beers on appearance, aroma, taste, mouthfeel, and aftertaste, using the Beer Judge Certicfication Program (BJCP) criteria. A "most pours" award crowns the crowd favorite after the event. Vote with your tastebuds...

So, since most of you all can't make it, I will be happy to go in your place and report back which brews are the best. Believe it or not, they can be a little "hoppy" - you know it when you smell it...but its a great time.
Not as great as CSM, but with no water near us its the next best thing....BEER!!!!

It's kind of hard, because they truly have to rent a refrigerated truck to take the hops back in order for them to qualify....its really expensive to do, so not everyone participates.
