What started as the first experimental beer in our first Hoppin’ Summer Series in 2016 is now a yearly offering! The Fall 2018 version of Beer From Here features all local malt and hops, including four types of malt (Pilsen, Vienna, Rye, and White Wheat) from Valley Malt, plus 2-Row malt from Maine Malt House. We wet hopped with Cascade hops from our very own hop yard, used Mt. Hood, Centennial, and Cascade from Aroostoock Hops (Maine), and finished it with Cascade hops from Wicked Hops in Kingston, NH! The result is a hop-forward, hazy, golden ale with flavors of grapefruit, lemon, orange pith, with some slight grassiness.
Fall 2017 Beer From Here featured malt fromValley Malt, Blue Ox Malthouse, and Maine Malt, plus it used wet Chinook hops from our farm and our neighbor’s farm, as well as Centennial, Cascade, and Chinook hops from Wicked Hops. The result was a smooth drinking, crisp, and hoppy ale with notes of candied citrus.
