Fresh Simcoe Hops

20120907-144313.jpg

Fresh Simcoe hops just came in yesterday. This is a once a year event as these hops are fresh off the vine and shipped directly to us next day air from the farm that they are grown in. This variety – Simcoe – has limited availability and is sought after for it’s piney resin character. Ron will use them for dry and mash hopping in the brewery. The kitchen has made some syrups with these hops for use in our cocktails and as a ingredient in our southern-inspired creations. Ron expects other varieties to come in as they are harvested.
