Kind Ale

Kind Ale can be referred to as a “wet hopped” or “fresh hopped” beer, meaning that it was brewed with hops that were, literally, just picked off the vine a few hours before. Seeing as you can only pick hops during their harvesting season, Kind Ale can only be made when the hops are fully matured and ready for use. Until a few years ago, we really didn’t have the capabilities to brew wet hopped ales (aka Harvest Ales), due to the proximity of our brewery to mature hop fields. However, now that there is a small hop growing industry taking place in Northern Michigan, this allows us to receive hops the same day that they were picked, and brew with them to create these symbolic and distinguishably different tasting hoppy beers.
