Hops: The Why and The Experimental

Hops: The Why and The Experimental

Quickly review how we got to using hops in beer and why followed by a quick review of the hop plant. Next, review the yearly hop selection process that we go through at Deschutes Brewery and explain the why. The majority of the discussion will then cover hop breeding and the creation of experimental hops; the process and the why. This is an exciting time for brewers at any level!
