Fresh hop ales emerged as the central trend in brewing last year, and we're coming around to them again in 2008. Deschutes and BridgePort have announced the release of their versions, and via John Foyston, I see that my '07 Satori winner--Full Sail Lupulin Ale--is poised to make a return. Have you seen any hitting the market yet?
Speaking of hitting the market, isn't it September 2? And isn't September 2 the day Deschutes was supposed to release The Dissident? Nothing yet at Belmont Station, but maybe if someone's at the brewpub downtown, they can report back.
After the long summer of slow releases, things are about to get exciting.
