September is fresh hop season in the Pacific Northwest. Fremont is really into fresh hops, in fact, we brew more fresh hop beer than any other brewery in the world. Fresh hop season requires a massive team effort from crop to can, farm to brewery, where over 25 pounds of hops will be packed into each barrel of Fremont fresh hop beer.

Crack open a can of fresh hop beer this fall and release the hops!

 
 

IT’S NOT EASY BEING THIS FRESH

Who grew your beer

The Carpenter Family has been growing hops in Yakima for over 150 years and helped pioneer what is now the largest hop growing region in the world. We partner with the Carpenter’s to grow unique and experimental hop varieties which help drive innovation in our beer and across the craft industry. Brad, pictured here, has stood by us since we sold our first beer and we stand by him, although we’re a good deal shorter. Brad is a 6th generation Carpenter to grow hops and is training the 7th generation to do the same.
