I see one of our sponsors is setting up Pre orders. Got me thinking of they do well where I live.

Neomexicana is a true American hop. Not transplanted from Europe.

So far on my Google searches, the variants are Multi head, Neo1, Amallia, and Willow Creek.

Multi is peachy. Neo1 is lemon/citrus and Amallia is earthy.

I am willing to buy a few to test out. I am wondering if anyone else planted them.

I just pre-ordered the Neo 1 and Amilla. It'll be interesting to see how they do here in New Mexico.

Not sure if they have distro where you are, but Crazy Mountain just released a beer with this hop.

Nobody distributes good beer here, that's why I homebrew and travel so much. But i'll look for it on my next trip north.

I was thinking about ordering 1 of each, but not sure how they would handle the Mexico to Maine transition. I don't think these Mexican breeds will make it in the U.S on a huge scale for that reason, all the huge hop growing is in the North.

"Crazy Mountain partnered with CLS Farms in the Yakima growing region of Washington to brew with this unheard of hop."

So....

Cheers!

They found the plants in New Mexico / Colorado region.

High elevation, extreme hot and cold seasons. I am guessing dry and humid conditions as well.

Only one that I cannot find is multi head hop. I hope a vendor will sell that rhizome. A peach flavored hop. Sounds yummy.

New Mexico is actually a state in the United States, it occupies that strange space between Texas and Arizona. Mexico is that space south of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. We're kind of sensitive about people in the US not understanding the difference between Mexico and New Mexico.
