Heritage Hops – Unknown

* 2017 Results Alpha 3.9% Beta 5.1%

These hops were collected from the former site of the Preston Hop Yards that has not grown hops commercially since the time of Prohibition.  We’re very excited to have found some of the original hop plants at the edge of the former yards (now covered in subdivision) with the help of a local historian.   Our belief is that these will be of German decent and we hope to identify their lineage once we get the plants back into commercial production.
