Anyone that knows me knows that I am a Hop Head, I love the bitterness, the floral scents that this plant creates in Beer. Recently there was an article in the Wall Street Journal and the Pittsburgh Post Gazette about a new Trend in Wet Hopping. As the article states, think Beaujoulais wine, this is using the freshest hops and making beer with it, which creates a completely different taste then the use of hop pellets that most Craft brewery's use. This is a really great article in that its gives some really useful information on the Hops, their implementation and the great beers that take it to the extreme. Anyone that wants to learn a little more about Hops I urge to read this article.
