Hoppy Blonde


Since 2012 Natalie and Vinnie have been eyeing experimental hop HBC-692 at the experimental hopyard at Select Botanical’s in Yakima, WA. It particularly struck a chord with them because of its beautiful pink grapefruit aroma. Every year since, they have visited the same handful of hop vines to smell this amazing new hop variety. Finally, we have got our hands on enough to make a batch or two at our brewpub. Wanting to do something different yet still showcasing the beers delicate aroma, Vinnie decided to make a Hoppy Blonde. We hope you enjoy the beautiful citrus, grapefruit aroma as much we do.
