Come On, Get Hoppy … At BC Hop Fest 2017!

August 28th, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

BC Hop Fest 2017October is BC Craft Beer Month and it all kicks off with BC Hop Fest! BC Hop Fest is more than 35 breweries, 4 food trucks, live music, and the new Hop Market! September 30th, 2017 1pm to 6pm in Abbotsford, BC.

BC Hop Fest is a unique annual celebration of British Columbia’s craft breweries and hop products. Craft brewing fans and hop lovers alike come together to eat, drink, and kick up their heels in a field of hops on the vine.

The main focus of BC Hop Fest is fresh hop beer. While traditional brewing uses dried hops, fresh or “wet” hopped beers use freshly harvested, green, whole cone hops whose oils and resins are still at their peak. You can taste this freshness in every sip of a properly balanced wet hopped beer. The style adds a spicy, lively, citrusy flavour that’s hard to do without once you’ve had it. The difference is almost like that between fresh or canned foods.

BC Hop Fest offers an afternoon of craft beer tasting, hop farm tours, local food trucks, and live music in the form of March Hare and Loud n Leaded. Numerous brew masters will also be on hand to discuss the brewing process.

This year’s BC Hop Fest also offers something new in the form of a “Hop Market” and presentations on a variety of uses for hops. Tickets for this annual event always go fast, so get yours now if you intend to attend!
