Over the next few months, you will see some cool new IPAs from Vault Brewing. Due to the relationship with our sister brewery in Australia (Mornington Peninsula Brewery), we are able to secure WHOLE FLOWER hops from Australia! These were freshly harvested and sent to us last week (we are the only US brewery to use whole flower Australian hops). We have 4 different varieties and the first one will be on tap next week.
The four varieties are:
Summer, Ella, Galaxy, and the brand new hop called "Victoria's Secret." We bet the last one makes one sexy IPA...
Victoria's Secret IPA goes on tap first - keep close to our facebook page for updates.
*UPDATE 7/9 - Victoria's Secret IPA is now on tap! Up next is Galaxy IPA followed by a special "Aussie Blonde"
*UPDATE 7/25 - Galaxy IPA is now on tap! Victoria's Secret is gone but this next Aussie IPA is super tropical fruity.
*UPDATE 8/9 - Summer Wheat Pale Ale is on tap! Galaxy IPA has kicked. Ella IPA goes on tap next around 8/23
Why Whole Flower?
Whole flower (or "whole cone" or "whole leaf") refers to the unprocessed and pure state of the hop flower. Most breweries use pelletized or extract versions of hops, which are easier and cheaper to work with and store. We believe whole flower hops to impart a better flavor and aroma into our beer and generally prefer to use ingredients in their natural state where possible, rather than in adulterated forms.
