Hop Harvest Guide 2014
Gone are the days when hops were judged solely for their technical properties. Today, aromas and flavors take priority. The new Hop Harvest Guide compares individual crop years of hops. The first edition was presented at the BrauBeviale 2014. Highly skilled experts have tasted and described 21 hop varieties from the recent 2014 harvest: 14 hop varieties from Germany, France, Slovenia and the Czech Republic, four American and three Australian hop varieties. The goal is to find out as soon as possible whether there are peculiarities or differences in the 2014 harvest when compared to previous evaluations.
