Now in our Brewkettle: Secret Stash Harvest Ale
A celebration of Maryland's agricultural roots, each year's batch of Secret Stash reflects the season's harvest. This year, our Harvest Ale is an American-Style Wheat Ale brewed with local wheat and malted rye, along with local Cascade and Chinook hops.
For the actual brew, we invite all of the local farmers out to the brewery. And we put them to work:
Our brewers celebrate the arrival of the hops like we're in a goddamn Disney movie.
Nothing awakens the senses like a healthy whiff of those green beauties.
He's not old enough to drink, but he grows some damn fine hops.
If this view from the top of our hopback doesn't make you drool, there's no hope.
And no event like this is complete without a group shot. Behold, the motley crew behind this year's Secret Stash Harvest Ale.
Secret Stash will be hitting shelves and draft lines in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC in mid-September.
