The Hops

We have over 2 acres of hops planted on the farm and currently have the following varieties


THE quintessential American hop. Massive clean grapefruit quality. A signature hop in many American beers and has stood the test of time since the early 70’s.


A very versatile hop. Super clean bitterness with a nice herbal aroma with a little bit of floral and resinous notes mixed in.


One of the more aggressive, yet pleasant hops around. Very intense spiciness with some nice pine and resinous qualities. All around fantastic hop.


We have always heard these billed as “Super Cascades” and never really got it. They have a definite citrus overtone, but it leans more towards lemon than grapefruit to us. There is a nice, soft floral note to these with a little bit of spice and a clean, but substantial bitterness.
