Looks like more Central European hops are available now - some of the varieties NB mentioned getting in are Polish, I believe. Wondering if there were decent crops there, or if these are hop varities that don't typically make their way into the U.S. because they aren't as desirous.

I just put a big order in myself:

1 lb fuggles
1 lb centennial
1 lb styrian goldings
.5 lb willamette
.5 lb saaz
.5 lb amarillo
.5 lb chinook
.5 lb Hallertau Hersbrucker

That should keep me going for a while.
This place really went to hell. Follow the OF standard stout. Bye.
