    Reevaluating Dry Hop Techniques
    Reevaluating Dry Hop Techniques

    It’s a new year, a new decade, and a great time to reevaluate some of your brewery SOPs. As craft brewers, many of us have adopted a brewing-inspired version of the ”day you stop learning...” mantra: “The day we stop improving, is the day we turn in our boots.” Inspired by that attitude, maybe it’s time to reconsider your dry hopping procedures, or at least take a hard, educated look at them.

       When Head Brewer Alyssa Thrope of Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery started brewing in Denver four years ago, she wasn’t aware of the legend of the Pearson’s Salted Nut Roll amongst brewers across the nation.
