What are Gourmet Hop Plugs?

Hop plugs are made from whole hop flowers that are compressed to a 1/2 oz. cylindrical "hoppy puck" to reduce surface area and prevent oxidation. For storage they are packed in either vacuum-sealed or nitrogen-purged O2 barrier bags.

  • Hop plugs will impart rich aromas and flavors.
  • Great for dry-hopping.
  • Whole hops are the same hop flowers, just not compressed so tightly.
  • Gourmet Hop Plugs are the highest quality plugs we can get our hands on.
