At our 2020 Winter Meeting we had our largest tasting of Single Hopped Brewing Trials (SHBT) ever! 65 participants were able to taste 14 experimental hop beers (lager and IPA's) and rate their tasting preference with help from the BA Sponsored HopSource (DraftLabs). For a summary of our tasting results, please see the attachment below.
During the HRC Summer Meeting, 2019, membership tasted beer produced from two experimental lines, W1121-059 (Galena x 21321M) and 2012063-007 (Tradition x 64035M), both USDA Experimental hop lines. W1121-059 is currently going through virus screening at the CPCNW in anticipation of elite line growouts (1+ acres) in 2020. 2012063-007 was identified as a high potential advanced line through HopSource aroma trials and agronomic observations. 2012063-007 was submitted to the CPCNW in 2019 in anticipation of future elite line growouts.
Many thanks to Deschutes Brewing and Widmer Brewing for brewing these lines for the HRC membership!!
