Good news: Philadelphia Brewing Company began shipping its autumn seasonal Harvest From The Hood yesterday, and it couldnt come at a better time. For the uninitiated, its the Kenzinger makers wet hop ale. Each year its brewed almost immediately after homegrown hops are harvested at the brewery and nearby at Greensgrow Farm. The freshly picked hops add a bold grassy and citrus character thats balanced by caramel-y malt backbone. And its showing up at beer distributors, bottle stores and on draft lists just as the seasonally affective pumpkin beer fatigue is reaching a fever pitch. Its also one of the beers that will be on tap Saturday during Grey Lodge Pubs Hardy-Har-Harvest stand-up comedy and wet-hopped beer night.
