The Bruce Blend:
The Bruce is a vibrant, aromatic and concentrated blend we’ve created in honor of Bruce Eggers. Freestyle Hops wouldn’t be here today without the wisdom and knowledge that Bruce continues to pass on about growing hops in Sunrise Valley. Bruce and Betty farmed the Sunrise Valley property for more than 50 years, they continue to watch over (literally!) from their new house above the farm. To make The 2020 Bruce Freestyle Hops used early Nelson Sauvin, early Motueka, late Pacifica and mid Southern Cross. The aroma has fresh gooseberry, citrus peel, ripe tropical fruit and orange blossom. When brewed, the complex aromatics remain true to rubbing.
The Betty Blend
Freestyle Hops has been experimenting with variations on a new and quite different production process. It’s our top-secret method of preserving and synergistically increasing perception of desirable aroma-active thiol compounds, creating bright and complex results. The goal with these efforts is to discover new methods to preserve and enhance the exciting flavours and aromas of our terroir.
Pacifica imparts complex citrus and floral characteristics with a noble hop essence. The true measure of a hop is in the flavour and aroma it imparts to your beer.
