One of the most prevalent hops grown in the United States that accounts for nearly 20% of the hop crop. Willamette is the daughter of Fuggle and carries with it the same pepper and spice. It is primarily used as an aroma hop due to its low Alpha Acid content, which usually sits around 4-7%. Works really well when brewing darker styles for the colder months.
