Featured Canned Beer Review – Wet Hop from Fremont Brewing

Fremont Brewing has been absent from my tasting for a long, long while but thanks to the delivery site Tavour, I got to sample a couple fresh hop ales from their Field to Ferment series.
Strong with the cat pee this one is. Big aroma of hearty Simcoe in this fresh hop beer. This is really bright and hop filled. Pretty much what you would expect from a fresh beer. This has a solid bite to it that really hits the palate. I think it beats out the Centennial version which is has a little less zest to it.

I am still a little confused as to why they have a website to distinguish which hop varietal you have when they could put that info on a label and make it easier for the consumer. Instead they have a number on the cans and colored coded bottle caps on the bombers which you then figure out yourself.

That aside, I am glad that I got to try this hoppy beer from Seattle.

  1. It got confusing in my cooler when we went camping. If you got these beers in a 6 or 12 pack the cardboard case had a sticker on it showing the hop variety in addition to the date code printer printing hop variety on the package. I guess somebody at Tavour should have printed some stickers if they were dividing up packages. IMHO the Simcoe and Citra were the best of the Field to Ferment series but Cowiche Canyon Fresh Hop from Fremont is even better.

  2. I think this is the first time that this has been done, one set of packaging for for fresh hop beers. I’m sure the can and case order was easier but other aspects were a PITA. Send an email and I might be able to get you the others.

  3. Thanks for the offer. But I am behind on beers in the ‘fridge as it were. I like the idea of identifying the area that the hops were from and I hope that catches on more.
