Northern Hemisphere Harvest by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company in California, United States

About Northern Hemisphere Harvest by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

Northern Hemisphere was the first wet hop ale and it inspired the wet hop craze in America. Wet—undried—hops go straight from the fields into the kettles within 24 hours. Because hops are incredibly perishable, using hops wet preserves all of the precious oils and resins for a unique drinking experience as evidenced by the intense herbal green flavors and citrus-like and floral aromas.


We set out with a simple goal: brew the beers we wanted to drink. We started small, with a homebrew shop, a love of American hops and plenty of passion. In the process, we changed the beer world forever. Decades later, we’re still at it, and the passion burns brighter than ever.
