Dear Brewmaster,

What's all this I hear about dry-hopping? What is it?

Sincerely,
Greg from Verdi

hr

Hey Greg, Dry-hopping is the process of adding hops directly to a fermented beer. This gives the beer a huge hop aroma without imparting any additional bitterness. 

Thanks for writing in, and keep those questions coming!

WEDNESDAYS

MOST WEDNESDAY NIGHTS ~ AS LONG AS IT’S POPULAR

Beginning April 10th, we’re serving up a delicious meal for meat lovers – a 1/2 slab of ribs locally smoked at the Sausage Factory, fries, and cucumber salad with a Honey Porter BBQ sauce on the side.

Finally – something happy on hump day!
