TORONTO, ON – Black Creek Historic Brewery, a working recreation of an 1860s-style brewhouse located in Toronto’s Black Creek Pioneer Village, will be hosting a special Hops Harvest event this coming weekend.
Taking place on Saturday August 25th from 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM, the event is described as follows:
Our hops are nearly ready for harvest and that means it’s Wet Hop Ale time! Participants will help harvest the hops with Sandra Spudic, Head Gardener while learning everything she knows on growing and harvesting hops and barley. Once the hops are picked, each person will get to help Brewmaster Ed Koren add them to the brew, while Ed talks about the nuances of brewing with wet hops. The program will end with a guided sampling of three historic ales with our Beer Expert Andrew Gaboury and a tasting of flavourful breads and cookies made with our spent grains and brewer’s yeast.
In addition to enjoying the activities listed above, attendees will be given priority purchasing for the Black Creek Wet Hop Ale when it is released in September.
Tickets for the Black Creek Hops Harvest are $30+HST, can can be reserved by calling 416-667-6295.
