Why choose Garston Hops?


Previously, the only hops available were from a larger hop supplier with a more extensive production volume. As a result, they provide a wide range of hop varieties in significant quantities to meet the demands of mass production, however, the drawbacks are that there's no ability to purchase a specific lot (or even specific farm or region). While Rakau™ does have a general profile, the differences in farming practices and terroir do impact the overall aroma and flavour of the end product meaning that the hops you use on one brew may differ to the hops you use on another, making repeatability and consistency more difficult.


Investing in hops is an investment in the heart and soul of your craft brews. Craft brewing is an art, and like any true masterpiece, it deserves the finest raw materials to reach its full potential.
