Our HOPS

 
 

CASCADE

A tried and true workhorse hop that can be used for both bittering and aroma in the brew process by  adding a mild citrus flavor.  Best in Pale Ales, IPA, Porters, and Wheat beers. Alpha Acids:  5.5%  Beta Acids 5.0%


COLUMBIA

An almost forgotten hop that was developed by Budweiser but lost its starting role to Willamette.  This hop adds an aroma filled with crisp pineapple, bright  lemony citrus notes – strong but not as powerful as a Chinook.  Best used in lighter beers or when seeking a crisp finish (sound familiar) but try it out any way you like. Alpha Acids:  13%  Beta Acids:  4.0%

 


WILLAMETTE

Hailing from the Northwest this beauty thrives in the Northeast as well..  The Willamette hop has been used by craft brewers for years and for good reason, it adds a well balanced aroma that is mild and pleasant, slightly spicy, fruity, floral, little earthy. Alpha Acids:  not available for 2018


SOUTHERN CROSS

A variety from New Zealand we have decided to experiment with, this high alpha aroma hop has notes of citrus, lemon peel, pine needles and spice.  Very good in IPAs and has an excellent oil profile allowing it to be used both an aroma and bittering hop. Alpha Acids: not available for 2018              

 
All I wanted was a beer and I ended up with an acre...
