No Clones! All our beers are unique. While we do try to match the style of some famous brews, we don't try to clone them. We purchase a year's supply of whole hop flowers at the end of each growing season, and we limit the number of varieties to those we can use up in a year's time, so they won't get stale. Life's too short to drink stale beer!
