Pearl Street Brewery is now collecting hops for its 2022 Backyard Hop Harvest

Backyard Hop Harvest

When: Now through October 31, 2022

For over 15 years, Pearl Street Brewery has collected hops from local, backyard hop-growers for use in their “Community Harvest” Ale. The annual small-batch brew uses hops from everyone to create a single batch brew. While the beer style changes from year to year, it’s always brewed with locally grown hops. Pearl Street Brewery is inviting area hop growers to bring in their crop to the brewery to be included in this year’s batch and, for each pound of fresh-picked hop flowers brought in, the grower will receive 1lb of beer (pint) at the time of donation and 1lb of Harvest Ale beer after it is brewed.

Rules for hop submission:

  1. Freshly picked: No brown rotting hops, yucky submissions will be rejected.
  2. Flowers only, please! No stems or leaves.
  3. Register your name with the bartender. Free pint now. Free pint harvest ale.
  4. Put on the drying rack.

Pearl Street Brewery Tasting Room will donate proceeds from every pint purchased to the Sprout for Kids Foundation. Area pubs and restaurants will have the opportunity to participate too; by serving the beer throughout the fall and winter. Proceeds from the beer will benefit a local nonprofit. Sprout for Kids Foundation is a LOCAL non-profit that raises money and goods to be donated directly to families, schools, and organizations in La Crosse and the surrounding area.

Interested restaurants and locations willing to sell the beer may reach out to Joe at Pearl Street Brewery.

What: 2022 Backyard Hop Harvest

Where:  Pearl Street Brewery (During Tasting Rooms Hours)

When: Now through October 31, 2022

Pearl Street Brewery Celebrating 23 Years of Brewing Craft Beer in La Crosse, WI!

Pearl Street Brewery Celebrating 23 Years of Brewing Craft Beer in La Crosse, WI!

Pearl Street Brewery’s original brewhaus was opened in the basement of the Bodega on the corner of 4th and Pearl Street in 1999 by Brewmaster and Founder Joe Katchever and his dad Tony Katchever. The inaugural tapping of their first keg was tapped by then Mayor John Medinger.

In 2004, Joe Katchever moved the brewery to a distribution center on front street while he searched for the perfect new home for his growing brewery. In 2005, Katchever, along with business partner Tami Plourde, started construction on their second location at 1401 Saint Andrew Street in the Historic La Crosse Footwear Building.

In 2006, they opened their taproom to the public with an expanded brewery housing a 20 BBL system.

In 2007, they bought a bottling line and began distributing their beers. In their home market, they were excited to partner with fantastic retailers such as Festival Foods, Woodman’s, People’s Food Co-op and Kwik Trip.

At the end of 2019 they added a new canning line and shrink sleever. Which allowed them to release 12oz and 16oz cans into the market in early 2020.

In 2019, they launched Turisimo Winery + Fermentations, a new wine division focused on collaboration projects with area wineries. They also partnered with Hoch Orchards and Hard Ciders to release their full line up into the Wisconsin market.

Coming up in 2022, expect to see wines in cans. More hard seltzer releases. And special small taproom only batches of draft beer.

Although these past few years have been challenging, Joe and Tami worked hard and they are optimistic for all that is to come.

Thank you for supporting Pearl Street Brewery, Turisimo Winery + Fermentations and our collective families!

Cheers too 23 years!

Celebrate this milestone in true Pearl Street Brewery fashion during the 23rd Annual Winter Ball. Join us!
