Wet Hopped Ales

The first craft beers featuring MI Local Hops were on tap and on store shelves all over Michigan this fall.  Wet hops also known a fresh cone, or green hops, are picked from the hop bine and shipped in apple crates directly to the brewery where they are dropped directly into the boil. It’s a transaction that builds trust and a direct relationship between the hop farmer and the brewer.
