Saaz is THE classic European pilsner and lager hop due to its mild, earthy and spicy aroma.
Our Saaz hops are grown by Virgil Gamache Farms in Idaho, US. Originally grown in Zatec (Saaz in German), Bohemia (Czech Republic), Saaz are one of the four traditional “noble hops” and a staple in classic Pilsner / Bohemian Lager beers.
The US Saaz variety benefits from slightly higher average alpha compared to its Czech sister.
