And once again we are talking about a new hop variety. You probably haven’t heard about this one yet, though in the hop industry the term new is relevant. Some folks have known about this one for a while. This Friday, April 27th Flycaster Brewing releases a new beer at its taproom in Kirkland. The beer was brewed using BRU-1™ hops.

“We brewed our pale ale with Experimental BRU-1 Hops. BRU-1 has a high Myrcene oil content that makes up over 50 percent of the total oil and contributes aromas of pineapple and stone fruit that is backed by a soft spice.”

BRU-1 was developed by John I. Haas through Brulotte Farms in the Yakima Valley. John I. Haas is a hops supplier, a hops breeder, and a research brewery.

Brulotte Farms is a multi-generational farm located in Toppenish, WA (Yakima Valley). It was founded in 1944 but the family can trace its hop-farming roots back to the 1880s.

BRU-1 is a new American aroma variety, and is said to have “a pleasant fruity character that dominates the aroma, but in beer, [it] really shines. The Haas Experimental Brewery made a beer dry hopped with 2.0 lbs per barrel of hop, and the beer aroma was described as pineapple, tropical fruit, and spicy.”

According to Haas, Bru–1 has shown to pair well with Citra, Chinook, HBC 438 (Sabro), and other U.S. aroma varieties.
