11lb Columbia Hops
Columbia enjoyed limited production in the 1980’s but was later discontinued in favor of Willamette. However, as craft brewers have started to discover Columbia’s unique, pungent kick of hoppiness and notable twist of lemon citrus, it seems to have come back in to fashion.
Columbia was returned to production in 2011. Now it’s used in Widmer Bros. Columbia Common Spring Ale among others.
