Strange Fellows Releases Hopdevil Fresh Hop Ale

strangefellows_hopdevil

VANCOUVER, BCStrange Fellows Brewing has announced the release of a new limited edition beer inspired by a harvest tradition from an historic hop growing region in Europe.

Hopdevil is a fresh hop ale that takes its name from an effigy burned by farmers in Hoppeland, Belgium each year in hopes that the mythical creature won’t appear in the form of a late summer storm to damage or destroy the crop before harvest.

The 4.5% abv beer is described as follows:

Brewed with fresh Cascade hops from the Maple Bay Hop Farm this beer showcases the cones, using malt character only as a balance to the earthy & fruity hop character. Flavours of honeydew melon & citrus escort this extremely session-able fresh hop beer.

Strange Fellows Hopdevil made its debut at the BC Hop Fest this past weekend, and is available now at the Strange Fellows taproom and store.
