Hop Profiles

Each month we have a new hop profile to add to our Hop of the Month. Hops are an extremely important part of brewing, so as part of our ongoing commitment to home brewing, we’re committed to profiling a new hop every month. Perhaps you’ll learn about a new hop and use it in your next brew? Perhaps you’ll just find a couple new beers that feature your favourite hop. We up our hop profiles every month and they always appear in our blog, so check back often.
