Introducing Great Lakes Hops


6 Propietary Michigan Hops In Stock

Bergamot™ subtly nicknamed "O.A.F." by the brewers in the GLH Brew Group that have crafted incredible first round trial brews with this hop. There is no lack of orange in this hop. You won't need to garnish your beer with an orange slice ever again.

AROMA: Mango, Orange, Dank, Cherry, Zest, Lemongrass, Lime Aid, Juniper, Orange Juice

Emerald Spire™ Pleasant, Fruit forward and Delicious. If the smell of the cones doesn't make your mouth water the first sip of any beer with this hop as the star of the show sure will.

AROMA: Peach, Juicy Fruit, White Grape, Watermelon, Skunk, Bubble Gum, Melon Rind

​Gemini™ is quickly becoming known as this year's ultimate utility power house. This Hop is no "one trick pony", offering endless opportunities to enhance and expand the flavor profile of a brew.

AROMA: Honey Dew, Strawberry, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Fruit Cocktail​

Mackinac™ May have been a little slower out of the gates but has proven the favorite. This incredible hop is among the first new cultivar to be released from the GLH trials and breeding program in 2014. It has gained traction and praise across the United States since and has not only increased in demand but cannot be planted quickly enough to fulfill requests.

AROMA: BIG Tropical, Citrus, Melon, Papaya, Spice​

​​Michigan Copper™ was among the first new cultivar to be released from the GLH trials and breeding program in 2014. It has gained traction and praise across the United States since and has only increased in demand.

AROMA: Floral, Tropical, Fruit Punch, Pepper, Cherry​

Paradigm™ is the proud beginning of an entire movement, an industry shift that may very well revitalize what it means to commercially grow hops for Midwest Hop growers.

AROMA: Herbal, Stone fruit, Tropical, Spice, Melon, Candy, Bright​
