Galena is a classic American hop that was been used in many quintessential craft beers. Galena features great bittering with neutral character. Medium, pleasant hoppiness. Strong, somewhat floral, pleasant aroma. We use this hop quite a bit in an assortment of styles.
MoreBeer! & Galena - a little fun history
Galena was the original bittering hop we used in most of our kits thought the 90's. We later switched to using Magnum but many of our original customers still really like this hop. Regan Dillon, MoreBeer!'s second customer and later partner, was a big champion of this variety through the 1980's and 1990's. Regan still loves this hop so if you happen to run into Regan at our Concord store or at a festival you can become instant friends by saying "Man, I don't know why Galena isn't used more!"
