(General AA range 6-7%) A brand new hop with crisp flavors of lemon, mixed berry, and tropical fruit. The really unique thing about this hop that commercial brewers are reporting, is that when used with other hops Meridian pushes and compliments the flavor of those hops in unique and interesting ways. We've learned from many brewers, hop specialists, and our own palates that blending hops is like blending wine - the final blended flavor is definitely different than the individual flavors. So try it ala carte in your next Belgian Pale or Blonde Ale and use it with your favorite IPA hops in your next hop bomb!

Our Meridian is grown by Gayle Goschie on her family's century old farm in the Willamette Valley and processed nearby by Indie Hops. Indie Hops has installed a new pellet mill with craft brewing in mind. Their pellets have more particulate matter left in place and are processed at a lower temperature to remain more of the oils.  MoreBeer! has been following their progress for years and we are very excited to be working with them to release this brand new hop to homebrewers.

Besides amazing flavor, Meridian has a great story. Indie was working with a local Hop Breeding Program to select a unique hop they thought was Columbia, a long lost and close sister of Willamette. After planting and harvesting the aromas and flavors were so radically different than Willamette that they had it tested. The results came back... and it was not Columiba, but a new unknown hop which they named Meridian.
