Whole leaf hops are the dried and pressed inflorescences of female hop plants. The cones are removed from the plants, kiln-dried to 8.5-10.5% moisture, and pressed into bales on the farms where they are grown – all within hours of being harvested in the field.
Developed by Yakima Chief – Hopunion, Cryo Hops® represents the most innovative technology in hop processing. It uses a proprietary cryogenic separation process which preserves all components of each hop fraction.
Hop pellets are produced from dried, whole leaf hops which have been hammer-milled into a uniform powder and pressed through a pellet die.
American Noble Hops™ pellets are designed to share traditional noble hop variety characteristics, including high aromatics and low alpha acids, while retaining regional hop characteristics that make them unique to America's Pacific Northwest.
We combine different hops into exclusive blends, often in partnership with organizations like Pink Boots Society and Glen Hay Falconer Foundation, with a portion of the proceeds supporting their respective communities. Blends are also a great way to create a consistent, enjoyable brew with specific brewing attributes. We produce unique Expression Blends like Falconer’s Flight, Independence, Pacific Crest and Zythos, that are specially formulated to create a unique, hop-forward character in your beer.
