    Challenger (US)

    A true all-rounder and team player for producing classic English ales.
    SKU: HUSC0044

    Breeding/Development: USA. A daughter of Northern Brewer with Northdown stock, this English variety has found a home in the hopyards of the Pacific Northwest.

    Brewing Application: A truly versatile dual-purpose hop, Challenger’s alpha content can be harnessed for bittering. It also possesses a smooth,pleasant flavor for early or late kettle additionsand dry hopping. Alone or in a blend, Challenger is an excellent option forthe hop bill for any British, Irish, or Scottish styles.
