So Fresh and So Green

It's harvest time here at LowDive. We recently picked a nice supply of Nugget hops from our fields, aka a backyard in Logan Square. The picture above is a fraction of the hops we yielded, which were then dried, packaged, and hugged ever so gently.

Nugget hops are traditional used as a bittering hop. You probably have came across them while consuming an ale, ipa, stout, or barley wine perhaps. With a nice herbal aroma and distinguishable piney flavor the possibilities are endless (we don't discriminate) for potential uses here at the LowDive collective. However, there has been discussion of brewing a single hop ipa featuring our new little green friends. Stay tuned.

Happy Autumn to you all and all a good night...
