Lucky Labrador Brewing Co

The annual Lucky Lab Hop Harvest celebration is happening on Tuesday August 30th. This year it seemed like the hops would never take off, but finally in August a few hot days allowed the hop growers to finally get their babies into usable cones. Hop Harvest celebrates the people who grow hops in their yard or on their farm for the pure joy of growing. Harvest your hops, regardless of what type and bring them to the Lucky Lab Brew Pub on SE Hawthorne on August 30th, where they will be banded together in unison to create two unique beers. The Lucky Lab Brew Pub will develop, “The Mutt,” a beer brewed with the hops yielded from the Hop Harvest party. A Harvest Ale, also using the mixed hops will be brewed at Lucky Lab Beer Hall and at least one keg of each beer will be available at all Lucky Lab locations.

This is a great opportunity to get your ingredients into a beer that is always evolving, because we are never sure how many different kinds of hops are in the mix. The final beer depends on you, so bring in your bines and let’s get to work.

Lucky Lab Brew Pub 915 SE Hawthorne Blvd Tuesday August 30, 2011 Hop Picking begins at 5:30pm (bring bines in any time during the day)

The Lucky Lab Hop Harvest celebration has taken place annually for over 10 years, with the 2010 haul weighing in at 170lbs. The goal this year is to tip the scales at 200lbs of fresh cones. You can bring in your bines any time during the day, but the party starts at 5:30pm, where we will gather around the patio and start picking! A keg will be tapped for the evening and the brewers will fire up the grill for food specials, while you get to picking. Please join us as we celebrate fresh hop season and you don’t have to grow hops to contribute. Come on down and clean the bines, it is a great way to be part of making a beer.
