Firestone Walker grew custom hops for Luponic Distortion 13

Firestone Luponic Distortion 13

Instead of simply selecting certain hops for the next Luponic Distortion releases, Firestone Walker went another way. Custom grown hops.

Three years ago, Firestone Walker’s brewmaster Matt Brynildson secured a deal with Hop Breeding Company’s breeders Jason Perrault and Michael Ferguson. Three acres of a special new hop cultivar was planted. According to Brynildson, it was all worth the wait.

 “The tropical aspect of this hop is really crazy. It adds a distinctive dimension to the aroma profile of the beer.”

This new hop is supported by five additional hops, creating a beer that boasts “unique profile of piña colada, key lime, and nectarine.”

Firestone Walker Luponic Distortion 13 starts shipping to all of the brewery’s markets this week.
