Green Hop Weekend
Green hop beers on over this weekend are Boston Fat Boy and I.G.A.
Our green hops are of the Pilgrim variety which is a UK hop.
Pilgrim is a mid-late ripening very Wilt resistant dual-purpose variety hop, which was developed at HRI Wye and released in 2000. It has the same father as First Gold and Herald although it is not a dwarf variety. Pilgrim has a very vigorous growth habit and has good resistance to both powdery and downy mildew. It has shown to be the most Wilt resistant variety to date and is a very high yielder.
Our pilgrim hops were grown by Mr & Mrs Richard Capper from Stocks Farms, suckley, Worcestershire.
