Craft beer drinkers rejoice – fresh hop season is upon us. The season was first brought to larger fame thanks to Sierra Nevada’s 1196 Harvest Ale. The beer was made using undried fresh hops, unlike the dried hops brewers traditionally rely upon, and kicked off a nation-wide trend of ‘fresh hop beer.’ Today, the term typically refers to any beer made with undried hops. More specifically, a beer made with hop cones harvested within 24 hours and dropped into the boil whole. The resulting beers boast terroir and annual flavors that cannot be found in a dried-hop brew, something brewers call a ‘greener flavor’ – i.e. something boasting herbal and vegetal notes. To learn more and check out some of our favorite ‘wet-hopped’ beers, check out our full explainer here.

Today we’re taking a look at an ultra-rare whiskey, firewood set and innovative fleece. This is Today in Gear.

Stay Cozy with this Firewood Set

Huckberry recently teamed up with Brant and Cochran to create the new Axe and Log Carrier Bundle. The set comes with a Maine-made wedge pattern axe equipped for splitting kindling or firewood and a log carrier made with Flint and Tinder’s waxed canvas fabric. The axe features A+ grade 18-inch hickory handles turned by an Amish community in Ohio and a head made from 1050 carbon steel in Western New York. The set retails for $495 and will come in handy all year round.


This High-Power Fleece Combines Recycled Sheep’s Wool and Lab Wool

Vollebak calls the new Ice Age Fleece ($495) "ultra-technical" for good reason. The jacket is made of recycled sheep’s wool blend and bluesign-approved polyester fleece (made in the US by Polartec) that is lined with high-stretch, windproof fabric on the inside for added protection. Storage is bountiful and includes two zip front pockets, two large side pouch pockets, a hidden chest pocket across the jacket and concealed lycra thumbholes for added comfort. The result is what Vollebak calls a "warm, super-soft and highly elastic second skin."
