September 16 we’ll be doing our third night where we showcase a particular hop. Actually, this time it will be a group of 4 hops known as the “noble” hops: Tettnanger, Spalt, Saaz, Hallertau. Unlike many modern hops which have been bred and engineered to have desired qualities, these are traditional hops from Central Europe that grew naturally in the wild. Their low bitterness and strong aromas lend them well to European lager styles, though brewers these days do occasionally experiment with them in any style imaginable.
Price: $10 (plus membership, a one-time $10 fee)
