Silver City brewery uses native hops

The Silver City Brewery (New Mexico, USA) is flavouring beers with native hops from the local Gila National Forest. These wild hops are collected by the brewery’s staff annually, under a special permit, during a small late summer window which provides only a few days to capture the precious hops. The collected hop blossoms are then vacuum-packed and frozen for use in the brewing throughout the year.
