I would like to brew up a batch of blueberry beer but I'm not sure what hops would complement the blueberry flavor I'll be using real blueberries and extract at bottling. What are your thoughts...

I have never brewed it myself, but do enjoy Sam Adams Blueberry Hill lager. They use Tettnang hops which work well with the blueberry and are not too overpowering. I am sure you will hear from someone else here with direct experience. Cheers!

I've used blueberries with hallertua hops in an orange blueberry hefe. 1/2 oz extract in the bottling bucket for a 5 gallon batch was plenty. could always add 1/2oz taste and add more to taste. turned out great.
