This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

The crisp October air is thick with the aroma of fresh, green hops! This year, we brewed our annual Fresh Hop Ale with 400lbs. of freshly picked wet Chinook hops direct from the Yakima Valley in the Pacific Northwest. These über-fresh hops were harvested, packaged, and express delivered to our brewery all in the same day. To ensure the absolute freshest hop aroma and flavor, we brewed the beer within 24-hours of taking delivery of the hops. Dripping with the essence of oily hop goodness, Scratch #116 is all about those pungent, juicy little cones. The very first whiff releases potent olfactory hues of intense pine as well as subtle citrus and spices. You can’t get any fresher than this, folks. This is “vine to vessel” brewing at its finest!
