Wild Hop Walk & Hop Rubbing Session

Wild Hops

When: Saturday 12th August 2023 from 12pm-1pm

Where: Field Cottage, Peterstow, Ross-on-Wye HR9 6LG

About: Discover the history behind hops in this part of the world, and how the different varieties of hops are used in different styles of beer.

This will be a light paced walk up the lane and back, before we enjoy a hop rubbing session exploring the different scents and uses of different UK hop varieties.

You’ll learn about the following and also have a chance to ask questions:

  • How hops came to be used in the beer industry and why we put them in our beer.
  • Discover the scent of varieties such as Fuggle, Goldings, Bullion, Ernest and UK Cascade and how they are used to make different styles of beer.
  • About changes in the hop industry over the years and how hops from the USA have spurned a renewed interest in British hops.

After the session, you can enjoy a short walk to the local pub, The Red Lion, if you wish, for a couple of local beers and maybe a bite to eat (not included in ticket).

Tickets £10 – advance tickets only (not available on the day).
