I apologize if this question has been raised in this forum already, but i'm having trouble figuring out how to search this site.
anyway, i was wondering if folks knew what are good hop varieties to grow in the SF bay area. Specifically, I live in Oakland and will be a first time grower. I'd most likely be growing in a larger container (or half-wine barrel as I have seen recommended on this site.)
from what i've read, it also seems like most recommend that first-time growers focus on growing aromatic hops or hops for dry-hopping.
