After being inspired by some of last years amazing Fresh Hop Brews, Zak decided it was time for Cassels & Sons to get into it. A couple weeks back Zak and Chris went on a roadie up to Motueka, Nelson which is about a 6-7 hour drive from our Brewery in Woolston, Christchurch.
After arriving in Motueka the boys were treated to a tour of of the Hop Farm and facilities. They then had the opportunity to collect some Fresh Hops. Wanting to keep this brew as fresh as possible Zak & Chris loaded up the car and got back on the road for the 7 hour return trip to Woolston (Hotboxing with fresh hops the whole way!)
Back at Cassels & Sons Brewery Eli, Robbie & Dave had been hard at it preparing what they could and eagerly awaiting their delivery of Fresh Hops. As soon as Zak and Chris arrived back the brewers lovingly added the Fresh Hops to the awaiting boil… double, triple and quadruple checking all of their calculations and measurements pampering the bubbling elixir.
The finished product will be available (in very limited supply) from Thursday 28th March 2013. It wont last long so come on down to the Brewery at 3 Garlands Rd in Woolston on Thursday afternoon and ask for a glass of Fresh Hop Happieness
