Hop Swap

  • Great Northern Brewing Company 2 Central Ave Whitefish, Mt, 59937 United States

Great Northern Brewing Company is inviting all Flathead Valley residents to contribute in the production of this year's batch of Frog Hop Pale Ale by hosting our 5th Annual Hop Swap! 

The Hop Swap will be held at Great Northern Brewery on Tuesday, September 15th at 2 Central Avenue from 5 - 8 p.m. in conjunction with the Farmer's Market in downtown Whitefish. Everyone with home-grown hops is encouraged to bring them to the brewery. Based on the quantity of hops provided by each grower, Great Northern Brewery will offer a voucher that is redeemable for products at the Draught House - the on-premise retailer at the Brewery.

If interested in contributing hops for the Hop Swap, there are a few guidelines that should be observed. Since Frog Hop is a “wet-hopped” beer, the hops must be picked within 24 hours of the September 15th event. They must be whole leaf green hops with little to no browning. All stems and leaves should be removed. Great Northern Brewing Company reserves the right to accept or decline hops based on appearance.
