Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Most widely used for their aromatic properties, UK Challenger hops can act as a bittering agent in your brew, as well. These hops make a great choice for early and late kettle additions, that contribute a spicy, woodsy cedar, and green tea character to any type of Ale. You can also get crisp fruity notes with late kettle additions. This is a granddaughter of Northern Brewer, with lineage also including Target and Northdown.

I love hops
I don't think I have found a hop I don't like. This is no exception.
