What’s hop hash? 

SweetWater pioneered the usage of this little known ingredient, hop hash.   SweetWater’s brewers work with their hop suppliers to dig deep into the pelletizers, scrape them clean, and gather bricks of the leftover pure hop lupulin goodness.  They are harvesting a very concentrated form of hop resin, also known as hash, to cook up these brews that deliver a pungent punch to the palate.  SweetWater’s head brewer Nick Nock explains:  “Hop hash is the leftover resin that escaped from the hop cones going through the pelletizer, which is all too often ignored and left unused.   We’ve created some killer brew recipes using this sticky and potent ingredient; it’s been a blast to experiment with, and delivers the biggest hit of hop flavor possible.”
