Yakima's Fresh Hop Ale Festival was one for the record books. Such a great event and gathering of so many cool people, great food, fantastic music and, of course, great, local beers. Of course they had non-beer options including wine but one company that caught my eye was one a non-alcoholic Oolong Hop Tea from Blewett Brewing.
Well, I had to try that.
I'm here to tell you that if this keg didn't blow sooner it would have been the only thing I drank for the rest of the night.
Yes, tea. At a Fresh Hop Festival.
It was that refreshing oolong tea with that hop infusion and lightly carbonated it was perfect.
I asked the people at Blewett Brewing more about this tea. They said they make it in two varieties but it's only available in-house at the restaurant and tap room in Leavenworth, WA.
So next time you find yourself in Leavenworth find Blewett Brewing and ask about this hop-infused tea. I don't think you'll be disappointed. I guess they have good pizza here, too. All the more reason for me to visit.
LOOK: Best Beers From Every State
To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate
, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
