A wet-hopped beer in May: Lagunitas Born Again Yesterday

Lagunitas Born Again Yesterday

Lagunitas has Born Yesterday, a beer brewed with wet hops flown in from Yakima, Washington and thrown in the brew kettle within 24 hours. It’s a real treat if you snag it fresh.The beer is massively aromatic, dank, bitter; all the things you want in a fresh hopped IPA that is sadly only available once a year. No need to wait until late summer for your next fix, because Lagunitas Born Again Yesterday has arrived.

The brewery boasts some kind of expensive, proprietary technology that has allowed them to preserve the wet hops (making them wet all year). That means they don’t have to wait for the next harvest to create “Born”. While hops are just starting to sprout, you can have a beer that tastes like the coming harvest.

Ours is a homegrown process of time dilation for the delicate hop cone that the flower doesn’t even perceive and so delivers its still newborn self to our kettle months and months after its birth. Questing has no end and we are still tweaking our process but we hope you find this mid-summer anachronism to be as satisfying as we do.
