We Have Figured Out How To Harvest Our Own Craft Beer!
Special Release Party for Papou’s Brew newest beer.
Papou's Harvest Ale, made with Fresh Picked Hops from Michigan. This Wet Hopped Pale Ale will be ready on October 16th starting at 5:30pm in the newly renovated Mancy’s Steakhouse.
This American-style Fresh-Hop Pale Ale is light to medium bodied and is clean and dry with a hoppy finish. Columbus hops were added for bitterness to help add balance to the pale, wheat, and light crystal malt bill.
What makes this beer unique is the addition of nearly 50 lbs of fresh Michigan cascade, chinook, and citra hops that add a wonderful bright, citrus-like aroma to this very limited beer. 5.4% ABV and 38.7 ibu's.
Hops are the seed cones of the plant species Humulus lupulus, and they're actually very delicate flowers. They don't survive long after being cut, which is why almost all hops are dried immediately after harvest, to preserve the valuable oils and resins that add so much savor and tang to beer. Most hops used by brewers are in this dried or pellet form.
Papou's Harvest Ale uses “wet” hops
Wet hops have a different taste than kiln-dried hops. The base notes are similar—floral, bitter, spicy, tangy—but there's less full-throttle intensity, and the fresh hops add a vibrancy, a fineness, a definition, and a chlorophyll-driven energy that you don't get in standard-hopped beers.
A guide to the fresh Hops we used:
Origin: Oregon, USA
Flavor Profile: Who doesn’t love a good grapefruit aroma and taste in their IPA? As one of the “three C hops,” the cascade hop is notorious for providing this character to both the flavor and aroma of a beer. Floral and spice accents are also seen with this variety which sees most of its usage in Pale Ales, India Pale Ales, and an occasional Lager.
Beer Styles: Pale Ales; India Pale Ales; Black IPAs; Lagers
Origin: Washington, USA
Flavor Profile: Chinook is the hop that smells and tastes the most like you would imagine—a dank piney forest. These hops are known to have a very spicy finish too, and because of the very high alpha acid levels it makes for the perfect bittering component of a beer. Many brewers will tell you to watch out, because they can easily be overused.
Origin: Washington, USA
Flavor Profile: This is a very new variety of hop on the market and it’s blowing peoples’ minds with its fruity and citrusy characters. It is basically the lovechild of three different hops: Hallertau Mittelfreuh, US Tettnanger, Bavarian, Brewers Gold and East Kent Goldings.
Beer Styles: Pale Ales; India Pale Ales; Black IPAs
Hops are an important part of beer production, it is the spice of beer, imparting balance while adding aroma, flavor, and bitterness. Hops also aid stability. Without hops we would still have gruit, unhopped beer. Wet hopped beer doesn’t last long and needs to be consumed within weeks of release...usually not an issue with a great craft beer!
Come on out and join us at the newly renovated Mancy’s Steakhouse on October 16th when we will tap Toledo’s own “wet” hops craft beer…

Mancy’s hangs its hat on great steaks, service
There are not enough restaurants to enjoy a high quality meal with exceptional service, but Mancy's Steak House continues to set the standard.
The regal atmosphere of dark wood and low lighting fills with the sound of real conversation and laughter, rather than loud TVs and a harried bustling wait staff. It's a restaurant you go to when you want to enjoy your company over a wonderful meal of some of the best steaks available with outstanding service to complete the experience — we were glad we decided to reserve a table, even on a Monday night.
To illustrate the attention to detail, the recent soup of the day, a lobster bisque ($8.50), was a show stopper. A bowl of two full ounces of lobster meat is placed in front of you before the waitress covers it with the rich, velvety broth. The interesting presentation proves the amount of fresh seafood in the soup that is clearly there in every bite.
But back to the main course as, the Phillips Avenue restaurant is known for its aged hand-cut steaks and it's a well-earned reputation. The 10-ounce filet mignon ($34.95) is tender and delicious, without an ounce of fat or gristle, seasoned nicely with a noticeable but not overbearing amount of salt. With your choice of varied side dishes, we opted for the roasted fingerling potatoes that were fluffy with the right amount of bite.
We also dined on the 14-ounce New York strip steak ($33.95), and 16-ounce Delmonico ribeye ($36.95) with sauteed mushrooms. Both were marbled cuts of meat and expertly cooked to a perfect medium. The New York strip is listed as the restaurant's "house steak," but an argument can be made for the Delmonico — they're both that good.
If you're in the mood for something other than steak, Mancy's has a nice selection chicken and lamb dishes, as well as seafood, such as the salmon over gnocci ($24.95). A generous portion of rich salmon is served over house-made potato gnocchi with sun dried tomatoes and spinach in a light and creamy veloute sauce.
It's the details at Mancys that standout, such as the presentation of the house salads served with every meal. They are not a throw-away option like at some restaurants, but fresh mixed greens topped with hearty garlic croutons and decorative carrot strings served on a chilled plate. The poppyseed dressing is a nice addition if you're looking for something sweet.
The appetizers are served in large portions and can be meals by themselves. The crab-stuffed mushrooms ($8.95) were a huge hit during our first visit. Meanwhile, if we did have one quibble, it was the side of broccoli ($5.50). While not sacrificing taste, the presentation of the two large heads didn't make it easy to eat. You will need the steak knife in order to cut through the thick vegetable.
A wide selection of coffee and after-dinner drinks continue the leisure nature of the meal with a number of delicious dessert options. The cheesecake ($6) is a well-prepared choice that is rich and creamy served with a tart berry sauce. The chocolate sac du bon bon ($10) is a large tower of dark chocolate filled with a light and fluffy chocolate mouse complimented with a raspberry sauce and Chantilly cream — it is very rich and very delicious.
The restaurant, which has an impressive offering of wines, also has commissioned its own craft beer and has other selections available as well.
There may be some newer upscale restaurant offerings — and dare we say with more ambiance? — in the area but when it comes to dependable, top-notch steaks and impeccable table service, Mancy's is still at the front of the line.
