We are celebrating the end of the 2016 NZ hop harvest season with a Fresh Hop Beer Expo. Brewers would normally use dried hop cones or pellets to bring about the fruity flavours, bitterness and aromas in their beers. Occasionally, hops are available in fresh form on the day they are picked and given to the lucky brewers who have made the pilgrimage to await the bounty. They then must be transported quickly, sometimes via aircraft to reach the awaiting brew kettles before their precious and subtle essential oils dissipate bringing unique and extraordinary flavours to the resulting beers much revered by hop lovers around the world.

The Hop House brings a selection of these highly sort after beers from Pilsners to Pale Ales, Ipa and even a hopped cider fresh from tap this Saturday. There will be live music and delicious food available. If you are a beer lover you will not want to miss this free event.
