Hand-selected hops make all the difference
Choosing the right hops is a lot like brewing a great beer—it takes skill and expertise to get everything just right. And there are plenty of variables that come into play.
Hops can have dramatically different characteristics depending on where and when they are harvested. A few extra days on the bine can result in significant changes in their flavor and aroma profiles. To find the best hops, you need to understand and evaluate how they are grown, harvested, stored, pelletized, packaged, and shipped.
Hop Head Farms hand-selects the finest hops, from around the world, to deliver consistent true-to-type flavor and aroma characteristics, so you can always brew your best.
