For the first time, there’s a confirmed sighting of some foreign hops. From the West Coast of the USA. Not such a surprise, as massive quantities of hops were shipped across the Atlantic before WW I.
Other than that, the majority were pretty local, coming from Kent. Mostly East Kent, with some Mid-Kent thrown in. Along with one lot from Worcester, England’s other major hop region.
Pretty fresh most of the hops remain. No real surprise there, as this was a style that would attract the best hops in the loft.
