That chance came when Matt recently brewed a collaboration beer with DC Brau, which featured hops grown by Hop Head Farms.
“We had a bunch of their hops on the table, and I was rubbing and smelling them, and the wheels started turning,” Matt says. “I was blown away by the different aromas of these familiar American hops when grown in Michigan. Two in particular stood out, and I made a call to Hop Head Farms and was able to secure just enough for the dry hopping of Revolution 006.”
The result is a beer that detours from Revolution 005’s more tropical tones and into a bright, citrusy grapefruit territory.
As Matt puts it, “Luponic Distortion Revolution 006 is a perfect example of how terroir plays into hop growing, and how it ultimately shapes beer flavor and aroma.”
