Varietals

We currently grow 10 different varieties of hops, each grown in a location to take advantage of the nuances of soil, sunlight, wind, and microclimate.  As we explore and better understand the flavours and aromas imparted by our different blocks and varietals we will update the details of our flavour aroma profiles.
