This summer was a right old scorcher, and we're pretty sure you guys also got your thirst on as a result. As luck had it, it seems that this summer played host to a whole plethora of beer festivals as well. All in all, there were plenty of opportunities to kick back and indulge in a beery treat, and with 43 new labels launched as well as (a new record of) 7 new breweries, the industry has seen quite a busy quarter.

Just when we thought we'd counted them all, a new brewery would pop up, or a new beer would be launched, constantly keeping us on our toes. So let's crack one open (we've got choice a plenty) and see what last year has been all about.

There's a lot to look forward to as well, and projects are being worked on across the country. So, grab a beer and let's … Continue reading The Hop Harvest: A Summer Summary
