I've seen Cascade, Chinook, Fuggles, and a few others all grown in our region. Not sure if they are native, my guess is no, but it seems there are a ton of varieties that can survive.

I'm sure someone planted them at some point and they are continuing to grow?

PS, I went to school at NDSU in Fargo. Watched the Bison take home the national title! Go Bison!

If I'm not mistaken the Willamette hop is the American variety of the UK Fuggles hop to answer your question hockeyhunter99

Let me know how those hops turn out, I just read a Homebrewer's Garden last week. I am thinking about planting some this spring.

i have a plan for a hop trellis that my wife and i both like and i use cascades and fuggles in a few of my beers. thought i would throw my hat in the mix as i don't know of many home growers around here.

where would be a good place to order rhizomes? any recommendations. the LHBS says he can get very few types and most are already spoken for. i was checking Nikobrew.com for pre-orders. if there is another place anyone would recommend, it would be greatly appreciated.


BTW. i am a sioux hockey fan but i did like to see the bison take it all. what a ride!!

I was looking at Midwest, Northern Brewer and Austin Home Brew.

Either Midwest or Northern Brewer are taking orders right now, and they have about all the varietiesw there are. I am up in Winnipeg, and have 10 different varieties on the go now (3rd year this spring), and all the varieties are doing great with one exception (I think it is Willamett, I will have to check my records on this). If you are looking for a native variety, although it may not be the best hop out there, try Canadian Redvine. I think it has parentage from a wild hop found in Winkler/ Morden Manitoba area, and this wild hop is also in the parentage of lots of other modern hops.

BTW, who is the LHBS in the Fargo area? I have looked for this every time I am in the area to see what is there, and I can't find anything but a grocery store that has some brewing stuff at the end of an aisle.

Speaking of the Fighting Soiux, what is going on with the naming or renaming?

The name is retired (for now) and there won't be a name for a few years. There are a lot of people that are trying different ways to get it reinstated but no one knows what the future holds. as of right now and until further notice. it is just University of North Dakota.

The LHBS is called Country Cannery. it is actually in Moorhead, MN (sister city). it is a homebrew/sausage/wine/cheese-making/cabinet design store. a little bit of everything. the other place is called Tochi's and that is just off of downtown. PM me if you want directions.

And check to see if Williamette is growing or not. it is on my shortlist of varieties to plant this spring.
