We had an amazing morning with our friend up at @thehopyard harvesting some wet Nugget hops for this years Nugz brew. This beer is one of our favorites of the year. It’s amazing to think how many hands play a part in making a beer like this. From fieldwork in the hop yard in early spring to picking the hops at their peak of freshness to brewing the beer. This is certainly an all hands on deck kinda brew that starts well before the actual brew day. We think it’s totally worth it!! After a long but rewarding day this farm to table style wet hopped IPA is finally in the fermenter. Stay tuned for this years Nugz release date. We’re pretty excited to share this one with you. #greatrhythmbrewing #drinkgreatbeer #craftbeer #craftcans #wethop #nugz
SCHEDULE CHANGE: the Engram release on 9/28 has been pushed back so that we can get our FIRST ALL-MAINE IPA out to you! Pine Tree Agronomics features Cascade and Nugget hops (whole cone and pelletized) from the @thehopyard, grains from @mainemalthouse and @mainegrains , and is fermented with maple syrup from @sawyersmaple! 7.5% ABV. We’re looking forward to this one! No other changes to the current schedule. #Bissellbrothers

Since we had some fresh wet hops in house Jeff (@thefoolsnightout) got excited and whipped up a cocktail special for tonight. This take on a classic whisky sour uses our house hopped whiskey, and floats fresh wet hops on the egg white emulsion for an extra aromatic pop. #hoppedwhiskey #wethops #classiccocktails
Yesterday evening we picked our own hops with our friends @thehopyard. These things smell amazing!! Today we’re using them “wet”, before drying to make a festive lager with these fresh Sterling hops! Now we’re hanging with the @beeradvocate crew for The Return of the Belgian Beer Fest throwdown. Come get some! A photo posted by Liquid Riot Bottling Co. (@liquid_riot) on

Here at Gruit we make noise about using seasonal ingredients other than hops to flavor our beer. But when they are in season there is no better reason than to brew a gruit like a beer. Shout out to @thehopyard in Gorham for hooking us up with these local hops! #portlandmaine #maine #gruit #craftbeer #buylocal #supportlocal #drinklocal #hops
Today we are brewing Half Light. This years batch features all Maine grown grain and hops. We grabbed fresh Sterling off the bine last night from @thehopyard and will toss them into a beer that also has 2-row pale malt from @mainemalthouse as well as flaked wheat and organic rye from Maine Grains.

2014 Fresh Hop Beer List
During our 2014 harvest The Hop Yard provided 15 Maine based breweries with fresh local hops. Below is a list of the beers those hops ended up in. The list will grow as the beers get named and release. Go drink some!
Monhegan Brewing Company – Island Farm Double IPA
Double IPA, wet-hopped with freshly harvested hops Aroostook county and Monhegan Island Farm.
Sebago Brewing Company – Local Harvest
Local from top to tail, this annual staple is now brewed with hops grown only miles away from the Gorham brewery. Get more info.
Hidden Cove – Harvest Bounty
Harvest Bounty is an ISA, 4 % ABV loaded with wet hops. Nugget hops from Gorham, and 15% brewery grown hops as well. Loaded with flavor, it’s best of both worlds, all the flavor and only 4 % alcohol.
Bunker Brewing – Green Mind
A wet hopped wheat pale ale.
Rising Tide – Wet
A local harvest “pilsen-ale” brewed with pilsner malt and rice, and hopped exclusively with Maine-grown wet Sterling, Willamette, and Nugget hops grown at The Hop Yard. Think pre-prohibition pilsner fermented with ale yeast. Herbal, spicy, with a hint of citrus. Delightful
Foundation – Local Harvest Saison
A wet-hopped local harvest saison, juicy orange and tropical saison notes.
Austin Street – 100% Brett Fermented Pale Ale
The tropical fruit flavors from this brett strain are complemented nicely by the grapefuity, grassy flavor of the Cascade wet hops.
Allagash – Sixteen Counties
A fresh hop beer brewed with oats, wheat and specialty malt then fermented with Brettanomyces.
Boothbay Craft Brewing – Wet Hop Dream
A 6.2% abv all-American wet hopped IPA brewed with Maine grown cascade & centennial hops. Mild herb & floral aromas with a nice clean true hop bitterness to balance out the barley malt bill.
Bissell Brothers – Wet-Hop
Traditional APA with 100% Maine fresh hops.
In’finiti – Harvest Rye
Hoppy, dark amber in color with a high proportion of rye malt. Loads of fresh picked wet hops.
Oxbow – Harvest
Wet-hopped saison with local hops, local spelt, wheat, oats and English page malt.
Tributary – Hop Harvest
Wet hopped ESB w/ fresh Centennial from WA in the boil and dry hopped with hops from The Hop Yard.
Banded Horn – Reticulating Bines
Wet-hopped 4% American Pale Ale.
