(Canandaigua, NY) – Naked Dove Brewing Company is proud to announce the release of its newest beer, Hopulus Localus. Hopulus Localus is a wet hop beer made with Cascade and Columbus hop varieties from Pedersen Farms in Seneca Castle, New York. Brewmaster, Dave Schlosser describes the beer as having “a great hop aroma and flavor that builds and changes as you drink it.”
Wet Hop Harvest Ales are made from hops that are harvested and used in the brew the same day. Pedersen Farms supplies hops for Harvest Ales to breweries all over the Northeast; Naked Dove is located 8 miles from the hop fields which takes local to a whole new level! Naked Dove used a jaw dropping 10 lb/bbl of hops to make this 6.0% ABV beer. The name, Hopulus Localus is a play on the botanical name of the hop plant, humulus lupulus.
Naked Dove Brewing Company opened its doors in the fall of 2010 with Windblown Amber, 45 Fathoms Porter, Starkers IPA and shortly thereafter added the popular Berry Naked Black Raspberry Ale. A growler of any of these fine beers can be filled at the tasting room for $9.00. The Special Edition Hopulus Localus is available for $12.00. If you would like a commemorative Naked Dove growler the cost is an additional $4.00. You can find Naked Dove beers at over fifty local restaurants.
