Willamette hops with flaked grains provide a nice, crushable session ale, able to quench the thirst of even a Sasquatch.
Dear Replicator, Last fall I made a trip up to that great beer city, Portland, Oregon, to visit a good friend. He took me to the southwest part of town to Sasquatch
Whether it’s a double IPA from which the hops literally jump from the glass to punch you in the mouth, or a stout where the hop characteristics are more subtle and used
One of Germany’s summer session beers, Kölsch is a fairly recent development by beer-historical standards. The style has no exact birthday, but instead emerged gradually as a beer style in Colgne shortly after World War I.

Looking for a wet-hopped (fresh hops) beer recipe? Lucky for us homebrewers, Deschutes was willing to share their recipe for their awesome Hop Trip Fresh Hop Beer. According to their website, “Vine to kettle in less than four hours, we wait restlessly all year for the hop harvest celebration. After bagging these aromatic jewels, we hustle back and toss them into the brew kettles within hours of picking. It’s our one chance to capture the bright citrus and pine essence of fresh hops.”
This beer is malty, smooth, with strong hop bitterness, and a wonderful fresh hop aroma to round it out. The use of Midnight Wheat (a dark grain without the harsh bitterness of many dark malts) gives this beer a lack of astringency common in dark beers. Then kick the hop aroma up a notch with the fresh hops and you will love this beer!
