How to Make a Hoppy Beer - Without the Hops

published 3 months ago by UCTV

UC Berkeley biologists have come up with a way to create beer’s unique flavors and aromas without using hops. The researchers created strains of brewer’s yeast that not only ferment the beer but also provide two of the prominent flavor notes provided by hops. In double-blind taste tests the beer made from the engineered strains was characterized as more hoppy than a control beer made with regular yeast and Cascade hops.
