The lowdown on Hop Project #35

Hop Project #35 was bottled the forth week of August (check the left side of the label).
For this one, we used Columbus and Nugget for first wort hops, then Goldings and Nugget at 30 minutes, Goldings and Nugget again at 5 minutes left in the boil, and then Goldings for dry-hopping.

We have ramped up production of the Hop Project, as it gets out into more stores in the six-packs, and as we expand it out into markets outside of Nashville. So if you are checking stores around Nashville, you may be lucky enough (and confused enough) to find three or more different versions of Hop Project available. We're having a lot of fun with this particular beer, and love experimenting with different blends and different techniques.

Knoxville got a delivery of #34 in cases and sixth barrel kegs last week. We'll be sending a limited number of #35 up there in half-barrel kegs this week. Memphis just get a limited number of cases of #35 (and of Sue) this week as well.

Just wanted to say thanks for putting the Hop Project info on the blog...I never really thought about checking the date stamps, etc. It's cool to compare the different versions and learn about the types of hops.
