Let's keep this thread going as information comes in regarding 2007 hop rhizomes.

Northern Brewer has pre-ordering available now for the following varieties:

Brewer's Gold
Cascade
Centennial
Fuggle
Goldings
Hallertau
Nugget
Mt. Hood
Sterling
Willamette


If anyone else finds info out there from any other sites--please post it. I want 1-2 more varieties to plant this year, but they have to be kind of obscure. I might buy another Chinook rhizome because I don't think mine made it from the old house.

I saw that. Time to research which varieties will grow around here.

I'd kill for an Amarillo Rhizome. Just an FYI, my Liberty and Kent Goldings took off last year. They grew to about 12'. Not many hops, but hopefully this year will be better.

I don't think Amarillo™ (Brand VGXP01 by Virgil Gamache Farms Inc.) rhizomes are going to be available any time soon. They've got a hot property and have done a good job of burying the origin. May just be a lucky find. [email protected] lucky!

I plan to get a few this year (probably Cascade and Hallertauer).

But I also found wild hops last year. They grow on the side of a tree that is on my usual running route and I may want to see if I can get rhizome of that. They had a nice aromatic hop smell when I saw them last year.

I like the idea of having some home grown Magnums!

FWIW, this past summer was my second year for my Nugget and Cascade plants. I got a lot of Nugget and even more of Cascade. I made a light (~4.5% ABV) pale ale using only those hops and I just started drinking it this past weekend. It turned out very well. I dry hopped with the Cascade and it has a nice hop nose. I plan to brew it again soon. I have plenty of home grown hops to do it!

One of my co-workers has wild hops growing on her property, and one of my wife's friends has a ton growing on her farm in NY. I got some from my co-worker last year, but they were mostly all old and brown, so they're sitting in the freezer and I doubt I'll do anything with them. Next year, though..

So Cascades grow reasonably well in MA?

I'd also be willing to trade some rhizomes as well--but NEXT year. I just transplanted all of mine when we moved so I want them to establish a good root base this year. Next year I'll have some pretty awesome rhizome varieties available. I'm psyched I picked up that Glacier rhizome last year.

These are the ones I have now--so do some planning if you want a trade:

Northern Brewer
Mt. Hood
Cascade
Santiam
Glacier
Horizon
