Adnams Wild Hop Amber Beer

Wild Hop pump clipTasting Notes and Ingredients

Wild Hop Amber Beer is brewed with Pale Ale, Malted Wheat and Acidified Malts and hopped with locally gathered Wild and Garden hops including Fuggles, Goldings, Bramling Cross and Sovereign. This exciting beer is brewed with fresh (green) hops, which produce fantastic clean, fresh, grassy, pine and citrus flavours and aromas, capturing all the excitement of the year’s hop harvest. To add complexity we have used some Saison yeast in addition to our 'house' Adnams yeast which adds a peppery spiciness. 4.8% abv.

What's the story?

First brewed in 2014. In September 2014 we asked the public to 'Hop to it' as we appealed for donations of wild and garden hops, urging beer lovers to report sightings of them growing to help create this new beer. Needless to say, the public didn't let us down and it wasn't long until hops were pouring into the brewery from local gardens and wild spaces. The brewery team worked tirelessly to prepare all the wild hops for the brew day and the resultant beer is unique to the 2014 harvest. We repeated the call for hops in 2015, and our Wild Hop beer is now available in cask in selected outlets. It will be available in bottle by November 2015.
