At the behest of a regular commenter on our Facebook page, we’ve compiled a guide to finding wet hopped beers brewed in our home base of Illinois and neighboring Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin.
We’ve spent the last few weeks digging through brewery websites and social media and sending emails and filling out contact forms to compile these lists. And we’ve found hundreds of pounds of fresh picked hops going into nearly 100 wet hopped beers: IPA’s, APA’s, Saisons, Red Ale’s and Amber Ale’s. Some of these are widely distributed while others are brewed at borderline nano-levels and only available on-site. Regardless of the footprint of these breweries and brewpubs, you can bank on these beers dripping wet with hops.
