Boise River Pale Ale

We love working with new suppliers, new brewing materials and sharing them with our pro brewer friends and homebrewers to try in new recipes and give us their feedback in the search for your brewing satisfaction.  So it was with great delight when we came across a complex intriguing new hop called Idaho #4 Experimental hop from Jackson Hops, LLC in Calder, Idaho.  With even greater delight a home-to-probrewer friend Ty Capaci reached out to us in mid-2015 in the search for something new and exciting and different as he was firing up the mash tuns at his new craft brewery Double Head Brewing in Cambridge, Tasmania.  Fortunate, that we were able to send him something that was genuinely ‘new and different’ to have a play with on a homebrew pilot size brew day.  Thanks Ty, for firstly trialing something truly new and different in the world of hops and secondly for not only sharing some of the wonderful beers you brewed with us but also the recipe for your Boise River Pale Ale our homebrewer customers and friends to ”clone their own” at home!  cheers Ty
