This advanced course and accompanying tasting will engross you in the wonderfully complex world of hops which are the delicate, cone-like flower giving many of your favorite brews their delicious and complex aromas and flavors.
Hops are wonderfully diverse and are used for multiple purposes. Each variety imparts a uniquely different scent and flavor – from spicy, citrusy, pine-like, earthy to floral.
Our course will comprehensively cover the essential properties and nature of hops: you will learn how to distinguish between hop varieties and their origins as well as how to harness them throughout the brewing process to produce a perfectly balanced homebrew. Learn how hops are used for flavoring, bittering, and preserving beer and leave with a deeper appreciation for the world of hops.
