UPDATE: Alright, thanks for the wait guys; we have two winners!

Amarillo – Jacob Dennis
Citra – Steve Greco

Drop me an email at bertusbrewery@gmail.com with your shipping addresses, and I’ll get the hops in the mail. Thanks again to all who entered. Hopefully we’ll do something like this again in the near future!

I’ve mentioned it a few times, but I buy 98% of my yearly supply of hops in bulk after the harvest. I love the flexibility this yields, as I always have what I need on hand to brew what I want. I’m usually pretty good at accurately estimating how much I need, but this past year I bought a little too much.

 

So with that said, I’m happy to announce that we’re doing our first ever giveaway! I have 8oz ea of 2012 crop year Amarillo and Citra taking up space in the freezer, and I won’t use it before the 2013 crop shows up. They’ve been vacuum sealed in my freezer since harvest last year, so they are as fresh as year-old hops can possibly be. You guys have really helped make this blog what it is with all the suggestions, questions, comments, and support, so I wanted to say thanks.

 

Here’s how it’ll work: If you wish to enter, please leave a comment on this post with either the word ‘Citra’ or ‘Amarillo’. You can only enter your name in for one or the other; I’ll delete both entries for duplicate posts.

 

Entries will be accepted through December 9th, and two winners will be selected on December 10th. We’ll get in contact after that, and the hops will ship out later that week.

 

As much as I love all you International readers, I regret to say this giveaway will be for US residents only. Sorry guys.

 

Finally, I wanted to say that I’ve received a ton of great suggestions and requests for the blog, both via email and in comments, recently. You guys have some great ideas, but it’s often hard for me to either remember them, or keep them organized. So I’m going to create an additional page at the top of the site for suggestions and requests. That will help keep me organized, and hopefully I can dedicate some more time to those posts. Keep an eye out for it in the next few days. I can’t promise that I’ll get around to all of them, but I’ll certainly try.

 

Thanks again for the support everyone! Cheers!

    By far my favorite brew blog. I am a much better brewer since discovering it, having narrowed the techniques thus getting a more repeatable process, and your approach to dialing in recipes has refocused me on what's in the glass, instead of what's in my head. Refreshing! Amarillo, please, since it shows up in about half of what we all seem to like these days, at least in SoCal. Thanks!

    Agreed! The dreaded "Hop Giveaway" post is going to put me in the looney bin. I've been checking every morning for the last 3 weeks. Scott – what could possibly be more important than spending a bunch of your free time to give us the beer guidance we so desparately seek? Well, I'm not sure either, but I'll try to be patient…Hope all is well!
