I need to track down a supplier that can sell me a couple of bags of genuine Maryland hops – yeah, the stuff that they use in making beer – for a gift. This has been harder for me to do than I expected.
Check Northern Virginia. I hear there are a lot of Maryland transplants there.
I don’t know which breed is genuine Maryland hops, but you can get some rhizomes here and here.
And you are a little late Moe. You need to hurry up to buy them if you want to plant them by the end of March.
I don’t want to plant them: they’re to be a gift to a friend of mine who brews.
Yeah, ok, sure.
Any idea about the specific strain/variety’s name you’re looking for?
Or at least some information about the varieties of beer brewed with it, so I can make an educated guess?
“A bag of Maryland hops.” I mostly need it as a prop; worst-case scenario, I buy some generic hops from a homebrew store and lie. 🙂
Go with Centennial, then. It’s a pretty generic bittering hop that’ll grow in Maryland without special care.
Also, it should be readily available at your local homebrew shop.
http://www.midwestsupplies.com sells a large variety of US hops but you would have to call them to see if any are more Maryland.
Here’s the best relevant info I could find.
They don’t appear to have web sites, but try to contact Creeping Creak Farms for hops and Amber Fields for barley. They may not sell ingredients to the public, but it’s a start.
