Only 80 days until the Palm Beach Food and Wine Fest 2013. Local “foodies” are preparing their taste buds for the culinary delights. If you happen to be a beer geek here is some “hoppy” news for you – Tequesta Brewing Co. (TBC) 287 U.S. Highway One, Tequesta, FL (561)745-5000, is celebrating Hop Week starting today! Once a year hops are harvested in the North West and sold throughout the year for beer manufacturing.
This means a week’s worth of freshly infused hops in TBC beer. The difference is that these featured brews are not made with the usual processed hops, but with freshly harvested hops. When the hops are not dried, they maintain the volatile, perfumy and grassy aromas not found after they have been processed. The brewery ordered more than 100 pounds of six different varieties of fresh hops, shipped overnight, and immediately upon receipt starting imbuing beer.
Are you able to distinguish a Citra hops from a Mosaic hops, a wet hops from a dry hops? You may just be a beer geek. Stop by the unique brewery and taste what hits the taps today!
