A special beer made using green hops was the special guest at an event hosted by the Hart Family Brewers today (Saturday, October 5) at their base in Nene Court in Wellingborough.

Visitors were entertained by live music from The6thSense and Paul Strummer, as well as food produced by local traders and an appearance by Santa Pod racer Boozy Suzie.

Rob Hart, who set up the brewery a little over a year ago with his wife Sarah after brewing as a hobby for about 20 years, said the main beer at the event today, Green Hop, was made using hops from a farm in Worcestershire which were bought fresh and not dried out.

His wife Sarah said: “You don’t always know how the beer will turn out with the green hops, but it has come out really well.”

They were recently listed in the Good Beer Guide.
