A new variety developed by John I. Haas and Brulotte Farms in the Yakima Valley. It is big and bold with a fruit-forward character that also offers clean bittering (13 - 15% AA). BRU-1™ has a high Myrcene oil content that makes up over 50% of the total oil and contributes aromas of pineapple and stone fruit that are backed by a soft spice. Pale Ales and IPAs are the obvious styles, but might we are going to try brewing some funky Belgian styles. The breeder says BRU-1™ pairs well with Citra, Chinook, and other U.S. aroma varieties. 

"I love YVH hops. They are a great product. Y’all gotta try Bru-1 it’s my new fave for pales and IPA. Pair it with sabro for a pina colada NEIPA."

Brewers at Ninkasi use BRU-1, Galaxy, El Dorado, Simcoe, and Crystal together to achieve your favorite hazy adventure. This hop is king of haze. We're always stoked to hear from happy brewers. We've been told again and again that BRU-1 is the best hop for hazy beers that leave you in a cloud of hop love.


Brewers at Dru Bru use BRU-1 and a pair of experimental hops (HBC 586 & HBC 630)

BRU-1 has lots of similar characteristics as Talus, making them the perfect substitutions. Both hops are very fruity, pineapple forward, and great for dry hopping. Use Talus in your next beer!
