Episode 46 - Robbie from Yakima Chief Hops

A really interesting discussion with Robbie Harrigan from Yakima Chief Hops, we talk about the origins of the company and their philosophy, what the difference is between T45, T90 and Cryo, how new hops are named and how research and experimentation is being used to develop new products and brewing strategies, amongst many other topics! We really enjoyed this one so hopefully you will too!

We’ve managed with our amazing sponsors to put together a brewing competition, Hop Addition Style. If you want more information, please check out or have a look at the following video from HisDudeness, the one and only Tricky which should give you more information than I ever could in this one post.

The competition is going to be on the 29th July at Unity Brewing Co in Southampton. Jimmy has been kind enough to host us while we do the judging and come up with the winners. We’re open for registration right now! We’ll put a post up when entries are open!

Join us for a competition with a difference, we want your inspiration, we want your beers that don’t fit into a category, we want your super tasty banger that you dare not enter into a comp because its between 2 styles. Best tasting beer wins. End of discussion. Go register your interest, get your brewing shoes on and brew us up a juicy banger! Make sure it conforms to the recipe parameters on the website above and send that bad boy in! You never know, it might just flick our beans enough and you could win some pretty damned awesome prizes!
