West Coast style IPA made from freshly picked hops in East Chatham, Kinderhook
CHATHAM, N.Y. (Sept. 3, 2019) — — Chatham Brewing, Columbia County’s first and finest brewery in New York’s upper Hudson Valley, has released their highly anticipated season brew of Hop Crop IPA.
The “Harvest” India Pale Ale is a bold West Coast style. It is also liberally “wethopped” with freshly picked Cascade hops from Chatham Brewing’s hop yard in East Chatham. All the hops that are included in this release of the Hop Crop IPA were picked at Chatham’s Hop Fest that took place on Saturday, Aug. 24. At Hop Fest, patrons were encouraged to help pick the hops right from the vines.
“Hop Crop IPA is one of the most anticipated beers we come out with each year. Our customers get really excited about this brew because they had a hand in making it. Not only does it taste great but it is a brew that allows everyone to get in on brewing process,” said Tom Crowell, co-founder and owner, Chatham Brewing.
“By using oats to lighten the body and wet-hopping with freshly picked and locally grown cascade, makes this brew perfect for the crisp evenings we are beginning to feel as we head in to our fall season,” said Matt Perry, head brewer at Chatham Brewing.
Hop Crop IPA has a 6.5 percent ABV and is available on draft this week and, will be available in 16 oz cans the following week. The brew can be found at bars, restaurants, and retailers proudly carrying Chatham Brewing products.
