NORTHERN DISCOVERY WILD WISCONSIN HOPS

In 2007, a lone wild hop plant was discovered on a farm in Wisconsin. It was confirmed by lab tests that no domesticated hops exhibit the unique profile of this plant, confirming its wild origin. With elevated levels of Farnesene and extraordinary levels of linalool (2.5 times higher than any other hop in production), the unique brewing potential of these hops was realized immediately.

Within this species of humulus lupulus lies an ingredient deemed essential by nature. Allowed to cross-pollinate, untouched for over a century, these hops exhibit aromatic characteristics unlike any other.

The flavors and complex aromatics of beers brewed with this rare, wild hop will mature and develop over time. As oil-based hop aromatics fade quickly, they make way for the Linalool and Farnesene to move to the forefront. These compounds actually increase in potency with aging and lilac, pear, and bruised apple notes emerge.

These hops produce a flavor as natural and untamed as the Wisconsin wilderness in which they evolved.
