Northern Girls Hopyard

Thanks to Big Rock Brewery and Common Crown Brewing Co on the 3-Way IPA collaboration! This 100% Alberta hopped beer used Cascade hops harvested on an early September morning by the brewers and Northern Girls Hopyard crew, and immediately driven 4 hours to the waiting kettles in Calgary. We had awesome fun helping with the brewing! This seasonal Limited Edition Wet Hop IPA was released in November 2017. Read all about it on
Big Rock's blog.

Hope you had a chance to taste the July 2017 release of Bat Out of Helles from Edmonton's Alley Kat. This lager was 100% hopped with Sterling from Northern Girld Hopyard. Thanks to the brewers for speaking to us all about the beer at our 2017 Field Day while standing in the Sterling hop rows and serving up gorgeous tasters. A truely sublime hopyard-to-beerglass experience to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Northern Girls Hopyard!
