Just ordered up 7 rhizomes- ultimately I would like to plant 10 this year:

Cascade ,Mt. Hood, Spalt Select, Willamette, Nugget, Santiam, and Liberty.

I am taking the general advice of planting a bunch of varieties and
seeing what grows/yields well for my particular area.

As is fairly evident I lean towards brewing German beers, however do
brew APA's, American Ambers, ESB's, and stouts.


Overall I am happy with my selection, however I still would love to
pick up a crystal rhizome and I am hoping to have an "indigenous" rhizome from montana to plant as well (mtbrewdog).

Mine too. I ordered from somewhere else last year and don't remember them coming so quickly. They look to be quite a bit healthier too. Or at least as healthy as something that looks like a stick can look.

Unfortunately no, I don't; I am in central PA. I wish I was though, as I am quite intrigued by "wild" or indigenous hops for brewing.
