Hop Dryer

During Scott’s visit to Yakima, he took video of the harvesting and processing of hop cones.

Check out the massive dryer that burns below the fresh hops. This flame produces the heat that dries the hops to preserve their oils.

Reminder: Scott is Victory’s Director of Brewery Operations. Camera handling skills are not part of his job description.

Hops Explained – A short from Northern Italy

Here are a few hops facts for you:

1. Hops are often referred to as the ‘spice of beer’.

2. Hops have been in regular use as a beer-making ingredient for approximately 1,000 years. It gives beer its distinctive flavor and aroma, acts as a natural preservative, and is a key component in foam quality.

3. A climbing vine, Hops, like cannabis (marijuana), comes from the hemp family Cannabaceae. (Hold on there, Tex: they might be related, but there are important differences. Hops do not offer the same psychoactive effects as cannabis.) Interestingly enough, the hop plant has both male and female forms: the cones on the female plant are used in the brewing process, while male hops are used for breeding the plant.

4. Hop cones contain resins including alpha acids, beta acids and essential oils. The acid components (primarily alpha acid) contribute to the bitterness of beer, while the oils contribute to flavor and aroma.
