While most craft brewers use dried and trucked-in hops for their beers, Sonoma County’s Fogbelt Brewing Company
is turning their access to local hop yards into wet hop beers, adding those local hops to their beers hours after picking. Several of these autumnal favorites are being tapped at Fogbelt’s second annual Wet Hop Festival
. Five new beers make their debut alongside barbecue and street tacos at the event, with live music from local rockers like the Restless Sons and Down Dirty Shake, hop-picking demos and more on Sunday, Sept. 3, at Fogbelt Brewing Company, 1305 Cleveland Ave., Santa Rosa. Noon to 8pm. Free admission. 707.978.3400.
