Freshside Beer Release

The Owner and Head Brewer of Brink Brewing Co., Kelly Montgomery, organized a Fresh Hop brew day with Brink’s new neighbors and Co-Founders of Higher Gravity in Northside, Jason Parnes and Nick Belleman. Higher Gravity is a bar and bottle shop with a mission to provide their customers a laid-back atmosphere along with an educational approach to allow consumers to learn about and buy alcohol in a comfortable environment. Together, the owners saw this as an opportunity to bring a unique beer to market they personally created and can collectively educate consumers on. 

“Wet Hop” refers to hops that are used fresh off the bine without being processed. These can only be used for brewing during the fall immediatelyfollowing harvest; thereby making “Freshside” a one-off and limited release beer. Levanna Heights Hops, one of Ohio’s best hop farms, located in Ripley, Ohio, provided the fresh hops for this beer and owner BJ Kruetz (who lives in Northside) also came out to help with the brewing.

The beer will be released in at Brink Brewing on Friday, September 22, 2017 at 6pm and the following day at Higher Gravity on Saturday, September 23rd at 3pm. Montgomery, Parnes, Belleman, and Kruetz will be available to answer questions and talk directly with customers about this beer on the respective release dates.
