Hops for Beer Brewing
Hops are the essence of beer and brewing. The tiny flowers of the Humulus lupulus plant, hop cones provide both bitterness (IBUs) and a wide variety of flavor to numerous beer styles. Floral, Citrus, Spicy, or Fruity qualities are just some of flavors and aromas made possible with hops. In fact, many popular beer styles today are brewed to feature specific hop varieties. Hops provide an endless palette for experimenting with your beer brewing.
Hops can be added to your beer at any time, whether through a boil addition or Dry Hopping in the fermenter. Additionally, the natural preservative qualities in hops help beer remain stable over time. We have dozens of hops for brewing - domestic, imported, pellet hops, and whole leaf hops. We also offer resources for growing your own hop rhizomes.
Our brewing hops are pelletized for freshness, then nitrogen flushed to eliminate any remaining oxygen, before being sealed in a light-proof bag.
To learn more about hops types, see our article Whole Leaf vs. Pellet Hops.
