Cashmere Hops: A Smooth, Tropical Profile
If you’ve been hunting for a delicate, fruity hop with an amazingly smooth mouthfeel, look no further than Cashmere. Cashmere hops were released in 2013 through Washington State University’s hop-breeding program. Daughter of female Cascade and male Northern Brewer, Cashmere is a public variety hop that can be grown in your own garden.
Just as creatively hopped craft beers have captured the taste buds and wallets of consumers, so too has the passion and entrepreneurial spirit of the craft brewing industry captured the hopes of small hop growers across the country.

Hop Profile: Idaho 7
Idaho 7 burst onto the scene in 2015 with a sensory profile that reminded some of Mosaic in its multifaceted character. By turns it seems to show pine, tropical fruit, citrus, and tea leaf. You may have first tasted it in Sierra Nevada’s single hop series, but it’s becoming much more commonly seen in flights and pints all over the country.
Hop Pellet Quality
When it comes to hops, there’s no substitute for quality. For many craft brewers, who are typically using smaller lots of a wide range of hop varieties, understanding the pelletization process and importance of pellet density can help ensure optimal results.
BSG Hops Processing Facility
BSG has made a significant investment in a new hop processing facility in the Yakima valley area of Washington. This new facility means that BSG has complete control of the entire supply chain from bale receipt and storage to shipping of finished goods in one location.
