US GROWN

Bergamot is a dual-purpose hop that can be used in all hop additions throughout the brewing process.

Bergamot subtly nicknamed "O.A.F." by the brewers in the GLH Brew Group that have crafted incredible first round trial brews with this hop. There is no lack of orange in this hop. You won't need to garnish your beer with an orange slice ever again.

AROMA

Mango, Orange, Dank, Cherry, Zest, Lemongrass, Lime Aid, Juniper, Orange Juice

Brewing Values

These are the common ranges that we've seen with Bergamot hops over the years. Each year's crop can yield hops that have slightly different qualities, so these number ranges are based on history.
