COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the hop capital of Belgium, Hommel is the word for humulus, the plant genus where hops reside. Our Hommel Bier defies tradition by combining North American malts, Pacific Northwest hops, and a Belgian yeast strain. The result is a beer that combines earthy and spicy tones from the yeast with a slight orange note contributed by the hops. We think it’s buzzworthy.

Growler, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a hazy bolonde with a smallish head and some decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma is bright & fruity with some limestone and lots of fruity hops. It’s got a little bit of peppercorn and spiciness to it, but it’s mostly earthy with bright hoppiness.

The flavor is fruity and hop forward. It’s lightly bitter with some lemon rind, apricot and a nice minerallity. It’d put it at about a medium dryness.

Totally enjoyable on all levels.
