Due to the large amount of new hops being developed, we began a new single hop series entitled Zythophile Lone Hop Ale. Each batch uncovers the true essence of the hop. Our first batch was brewed in March of 2013. You may have heard of it: Yellow Rose. We typically release Zythophile four to six times a year.
