Nowhereman Preston Harvest 2019

Autumn’s arrival marks the harvest for many crops, not least hops. Nowhereman’s team took this opportunity to work with Preston Valley Hops, two hours South of Perth, and hand-picked 25kg of Cascade and 7kg of Victoria hops to celebrate the lupulin magic of the female flower. While Cascade is well known and considered to have played a pivotal role in launching the modern craft beer movement in the US, Victoria is a relatively unknown breed that was abandoned by Hop Products Australia only to be kept alive by homebrewers. It's described as having peach, loquat and mango characters, a tropical theme that;s unsurprising given it’s a sibling of Galaxy.

The fresh hops were driven straight to the brewery and added to the hot wort of a beer head brewer Eddie Still says wasn't based upon a defined beer style, instead one designed to work the nuance of the fresh hops. The result sits close to red ales, yet there’s a creaminess at play along with some rye spice, citrus and grassy hop characters, as well as a dry and lasting bitterness.
