Haas Comes to Founders

We recently had the opportunity to host our friends from Haas, a hop grower/researcher/breeder (and everything in between), based in Yakima, WA. R&D Brewer, Virgil, joined by sales rep, Micah, came by the brewery to brew with an exciting new Haas hop product called… wait for it… Incognito.

Incognito is essentially a proprietary hop extract made to be used at the end of the boil. It adds characteristics not unlike those you would achieve from dry hopping. The hop varieties featured in the batch of Incognito we used are Mosaic and Citra.

The beer we brewed is called Conundrum IPA and will be available on tap in the coming weeks at our Grand Rapids taproom location. Check out some of the photos from Micah and Virgil’s visit below:

    When you said Haas, you had me thinking of the racing teams (NASCAR, F1) and thought you were getting into sponsoring. Neat partnership and I hope Conundrum makes it down to FLA!
