Because of its delicate aromatics, Liberty hops are most often used in aroma additions. Its pedigree makes it particularly suited to the brewer looking for a hop that will work well in Mexican, German & Belgian beer styles.
The Australian Brewery in NSW makes a refreshing ABV 4.5% IBU 16 lager "Seis Hermanos" (Six Brothers) inspired by the hot dry plains of Mexico. Brewed with barley, maize, rice syrup and Liberty hops to give a deliciously light, clean palate with more than a hint of lemon and citrus. It won • Gold CBIA 2016 • Silver AIBA 2014 • Gold Royal Sydney Show 2017 • Gold Royal Sydney Show 2018
Fullers of London use Liberty to full effect in 2 of their US style IPA's "Session IPA", "Wild River" and their "Frontier Lager" as do Garage Project with "Pils & Thrills" & Stone Brewing with "Buenaveza Salt & Lime Lager". We were very impressed by the spice & floral characters of Liberty when we brewed the "Liberty Golden Ale" recipe.
