You’ve likely seen a dry-hopped IPA on the board at your local beer bar, but were you ever confused about what dry-hopping really means. In this brief video, you can take a look inside the facilities at Boulevard Brewing to see how they dry hop their new wheat beer, 80-Acre, using Cascade and Nelson Sauvin hops.

Cellarman Alex Rodriguez walks viewers through the process of dry hopping, explaining that the technique applies a hoppy aroma to beer without the usual bitterness that is extracted when the hops are put in the kettle. In short, dry-hopping is almost about the nose of the beer, not its flavor.
