Description

New Product!

Influential in the brewing industry. An offspring of the prominent English hop variety, Fuggle, Willamette offers slight bittering qualities in craft brews, but shines for its flavor and aroma. Fruity, somewhat spicy, herbal qualities also pair well with Cascade in homebrews. Vigorous bines yield small to medium-size cones that are a core ingredient used by professionals and home brewers alike. Named for the Willamette River in northwest Oregon, in the heart of the hops-growing region. Originates from Oregon in 1976. Ripens in early August.
