Hop harvest comes but once a year; you can tell as Brewers huddle in corners, whispering to handfuls of sticky cones. This year we have doubled the wet hop addition. Two Newstead Brewers, again, flew to Victoria, picked up 100kg of Galaxy hops and drove back in 28 hours. A week later, 100kg of Enigma hops turned up at the door, just in time for dry-hopping. 100% fresh hops, no pellets, no dried cones, all heart.
Be the very first to try our 2019 Harvest IPL release, Eleanor Reloaded, before anybody else. Join us at our Doggett Street brewpub where you’ll be greeted with a frrrrrresh hop beer on arrival, get to hear and chat to our brewers about their Victorian road trip, enjoy some fine food and walk away with a 4-pack of Eleanor Reloaded before it lands in any bottle shop or bar.
Dr Eleanor Schonell was all heart. She was warm, focused on helping disadvantaged kids and dedicated to inclusiveness. The Green Bridge, which bears her name, is a similarly conscientious addition to the Brisbane riverscape. With sustainable power and access only to people and buses, the bridge looks to the future, while paying homage to the past; just like this fresh hop Harvest IPL.
