A Centennial Hop Grows in Brooklyn

Home brewers everywhere are lifting their glasses and celebrating the Centennial Hop for a variety of reasons starting with the flexibility of where you can successfully grow them. A hardy plant, the Centennial can withstand climate differences ranging from arid locations to those with lengthy rainy seasons. From New York to California, no matter where you live, growing this hop gives you an opportunity to put your own spin on quality homemade brews including pale ales, wheat beer, porter-even stout.

An American Classic is Brewing

Often compared to the Cascade Hop, Centennial has a more intense flavor. Its higher alpha acid content reduces the grapefruit-like taste of the Cascade, giving it a superior, floral-citrus quality that makes it stand out. And more alpha acid-as high as 11%--makes it a terrific dual purpose hop.

Described by enthusiasts as having a smooth bitterness with a flowery citrus kick, many home brewers haven't yet discovered the secret of the Centennial. Isn't it time you did?

Our Hops are fully rooted for at least 1 growing season. This means you are getting a significant jumpstart over starting from a rhizome or planting newly rooted plants in Spring. In fall, as they enter dormancy, our Hops are trimmed back to the soil. This actually gives the roots an extra boost of growth before they become dormant. This is extremely vantageous to our customers who choose to plant in Fall or Winter as your Hops plant will be ready to establish quickly. In its very first spring your plant will experience vigorous growth and quality hop production!

Order your Centennial Hops plant today and get brewing.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Centennial Hops Plant

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Centennial Hops Plant.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Centennial Hops Plant gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Centennial Hops Plant again after the transplant is complete.

Whats the plant quantity in a gallon?
A shopper on Jul 27, 2014
Can this plant be grown indoors in a large pot?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Centennial Hops plant does very well grown indoors in a large pot.
Will the birds eat and destroy the hops?
John M on Jan 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. Not the birds in Central Michigan anyhow.

They do attract small black beetles, sorry don't know the type, but they did very little damage this year.
When do you know the hops are ready to pick?
Jay L on Aug 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: When the hope are ready they will have several brown tips, make a crinkling paper type noise when you squeeze them, and have a hoppy aroma. If not ready it'll be more of a moist type feel and sponge back when you squeeze them, as well as a more grassy type smell. Usually toward the top of the plant where they get more sunlight they will ripe before the more shadowed hops.
Will this plant grow year round in a greenhouse?
SGM John on Oct 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would think it would. We have both our hops plants in the house right now. They seem to trade off on doing well. We'll get one looking good and the other goes downhill; then we doctor the failing one and the other takes a dive. But, again, I think if you've got them in a big enough pot and provide the nutrients and space they need, you shouldn't have any problems. Please let me know, because we are going to be putting in a greenhouse in the near future.
Good luck.

When is best time to plant?
A shopper on Aug 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The best time to plant is in the early Spring or early Fall.
Does this hop plant climb/creep like the Cascade Hop plant does?
H J on Aug 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Our sample size is minuscule -- one of each type -- so take this with a grain of salt. But our Centennial plant climbs more slowly than the Cascade.
do you need a male and female hops vine to make it bud?
Kevin M on Jul 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No the Centennial Hops Plant is self fertile. However you'll have a higher yield of hops if your plant has a mate to pollinate with.
