The Bistro’s Wet Hop Beer Fest Run Down

By Joe Ruvel · October 7th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Chill festival with loads of fresh wet hop beer. Good music and cool people all over the place.

People’s Choice winner was Lagunitas Marshall Wet Maximus – made with Nugget and Cascade hops grown on Tony’s Hop Field in Marshall, CA (btw – you can get amazing oysters in Marshall – goes well with the beer!)

Joe’s Top 5:

1. Port Brewing – San Marcos – Homegrown Hop 15 – Boren Farms Fallbrook and Centennial
2. Moonlight – Just Go Shopping Fresh Hop Lager – Cascade and Canadian Der Bine
3. Lagunitas – Marshall Wet Maximus – Nugget and Cascade
4. 21st Amendment – Harvest Moon – Chinook and Cascade
5. Bear Republic – Grandmas Homegrown – Roy Farms Chinook

Honorable Mention: Black Diamond – Rye Ipa Wet Hop – Chinook and Liberty
