SWEETWATER BREWERY’S NEWEST DANK TANK EDITION – THE “WET DREAM”


SWEETWATER BREWERY’S NEWEST DANK TANK EDITION – THE “WET DREAM”
Brewed with 420 pounds of Chinook Hops only hours off the vine


SweetWater Brewery is excited to release “Wet Dream” our next batch from the Dank Tank series. A  high gravity imperial red ale featuring 420 pounds of –fresh off the vine- Chinook Hops from Van Horn’s Farm in Washington State.  These hops were freshly picked and immediately shipped overnight to the brewery and so they could be added into the brew within hours of being taken from the field.

Wet Dream features a full 420 pound load of fresh Chinook hops added to the 80 barrel batch brewed resulting in a staggering 5 pounds of hops per barrel.   SweetWater’s Brewmaster Mark Medlin worked closely with the hop farmer so that this brew would be ready to go as soon as the hops hit their peak at harvest.  The fresh wet hops define this beautiful red ale with explosive piney hop flavors and a herbal aroma.  Wet Dream is part of SweetWater’s Dank Tank — a series of small-batch, experimental brews.  This release we be available at the end of September for tasting at the brewery, and will be available on draft at selected restaurants and in 22oz bottles in selected retailers the first week of October.  This will likely sell out before the end of October since it was such a limited run, to ensure that it is consumed as fresh from the brewery as possible.  

“This brew was an opportunity to create a fresh hop experience and put something out there that shows people what to expect from a highly hopped brew whose hops, less than 24 hours off the vine, were literally overflowing the kettle” says Medlin “The Dank Tank series has kept things fun and interesting for everyone at the brewery”.  The “Wet Dream” Fresh Hopped Ale will be available on draft in the brewery’s tasting room on September 30th and throughout metro Atlanta, and select location in the Southeast, on draft and in 22oz bottles the first week of October.
