Personally I'd like to see Amarillo, Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial.
Perhaps Willamette, Northern Brewer, Cascade, Mt. Hood? Something like that. I would just like to see Willamette and NB together.

I really don't like crapping on people's ideas and creativity, but I've always said that just because it sounds like a good idea doesn't mean it has to come to fruition.

You can call it a "pack" or whatever you'd like, but it's still "bundling"
(think cable TV/Satellite dish/phone service where you only get some of what you really want and have to take the one(s) (channels/programs/packages/services) you don't want). Still you picka nd choose which channels/shows/ programs you like and disregard the rest.

You can't ignore the fact that you may have to buy hops you'll never use. That's not a good idea.

Sure, you can always sell them to someone who wants them, but always at a loss. That's not good either.

I find it easier just purchasing what I really want.

I'm only speaking from a customers point of view.

Sorry, but that's my input.

Thanks for the input Bill, and thanks to everyone else who has also responded.

I hear what you’re saying in regards to bundling but this is one of the reasons I put it out there. I'm trying to give people a choice, and lower the cost at the same time.

Let me tell you, these packs do not always work! I've done Friday Night Lights special for a few months now and some hit, and some are complete duds.

Just trying to change it up a bit.

Adding to that point, this also allows people to take a chance on hops they normally would not use without spending huge sums of money. So they get 2-3 hops they know and like and get a third or fourth that they may never have tried, and they can expand their brewing horizon

As a loyal customer and hophead, I vote for a newer high-alpha dank hop pack:

Apollo
Citra
Summit
Simcoe

These hops are all incredibly pungent and high alpha. Just my 2c.

I hear you, but would they really? There's always the 49%'ers who may not.

It looks like you gave it a try already and have something to base your decisions on. Good planning.

I typed up some other comments earlier, but thought better to just delete them, regarding hops prices.

It would be "simpler" if all hops cost the same (per oz, etc.), but since they aren't a "pick your own four (or whatever)" pack would cause pricing problems because of the individual hop prices (per oz).

I realize "A LOT" of my comments come across as harsh and degrading, but that's not always my point. Good luck with this idea.

If it were me, I'd do Brewery Packs (Stone, Sweetwater, Harpoon, etc) The hops they commonly use in their products.

And I'd also do geographical packs as mentioned in your opening post, or Beer Style Packs......Something Like IPA, APA, English Browns, etc.

I like the idea. I also like that you shipped my hops so damn fast.
Toss in some Magnum for bittering.

Sounds good to me.
