Welcome to Go

GOANNA BREWING has a number of SINGLE HOP BEERS on our menu.

Hops play a key role in the brewing of a beer; Hops provide aroma, flavour and bitterness. Usually a range of different hops are blended to provide the hop profile of a brew.  Some hops provide better aroma qualities than they do flavour, while others contribute great flavours but do little to the aroma .

In Single Hop Beers, instead of using a range of different hops, one single hop is used throughout the various stages of the brewing process, providing the aroma, flavour and bitterness to the beer. Single hop beers are great because they really allow a brewer to showcase the hop being profiled, while also educating the drinker on the hops’ various characteristics, and how it impacts the flavour and aromatic qualities of the beer.
