Thanks to Bintani this is a special edition of Beer is a Conversation.
As part of the 2019 northern hemisphere hop harvest, Matt and Pete joined Bintani as they travelled the US to make their final selections from the Yakima harvest. While there they made a visit to the Portland HQ of Indi Hops.
A relatively new kid on the block, Indi Hops is an overnight success story 10 years in the making. The company began with a hop breeding program launched at Oregon State University back in 2009 which grew to include Oregon’s first post farm hop processing facility and an experimental hop program.
Co-founder Jim Solberg and first employee Matt Sage are avid craft beer lovers and as this chat shows they bring a wealth of business and brewing experience to Indi Hops. Jim and Matt generously share their very different background stories before introducing us to Strata and Meridian – the latest hop varietals for which high hopes are held.
Enjoy the conversation.
