Picked up this 24 oz. puppy today at my local grocery store for $4.99. It's the 2008 12th Release. I can't wait to try it.

The cornerstone of our Harvest series is the beer that started the modern-day fresh hop ale phenomenon in America, our original Harvest Ale.

Created in 1996, Harvest Ale features Cascade and Centennial hops from the Yakima Valley in Eastern Washington. These hops are harvested and shipped as “wet” un-dried hops—the same day they are picked—to our brewery in Chico where our brewers eagerly wait to get them into the brew kettle while their oils and resins are still at their peak.

Unfortunately we cant get that yet in this part of KY. We have the Southern Hemisphere Harvest Fresh Hop Ale, and its wonderful, especially at 4.39 a bomber. Hopefully Ill be able to try the Wet Hop, and Chico Estate soon.

OMG, what a tasty beer. I'm going back and pick up a few more. It went down so smooth and tasty last night. The bottle is cool too, so I'm saving those. Heavy duty 24 ouncer, sweet for refilling with homebrew. It will make for nice Christmas Brew presents.
