About Mighty Axe Hops Farm
Mighty Axe Hops is Minnesota’s hop farm that is farmer-owned and operated. At 80 acres of hops, Mighty Axe is the largest hop farm in the entire center of the country. With state of the art on-farm picking, drying, pelleting, and packaging Mighty Axe Hops is a leader in the new-school of hop farming focused on aroma, quality, and terroir (terroir is the name for the effect of growing location on flavor of a food).
Northern Brewer partnered with Mighty Axe Hops because of the genuine passion and care given to each variety of their unique pellet hops. The hands-on care they put towards their craft will produce stand out homebrewed beers for you right now.
I used these in a single hop farmhouse pale (London ale primary, brettanomyces secondary) in both boil and dry-hop. It turned out fantastic. Lots of west-coast pale ale character (lightly resiny, grapefruit citrus, and maybe a little grassy).
