My need to drain "bomber" size beers so I will have a supply of large side bottles for a new batch of mead drove me to try an English beer made from all-organic ingredients: Samuel Smith's Organic Lager. England is not known for its lagers but this one is very good. Don't call it a pilsener -- it's relatively hoppy (nowhere near what's considered "hoppy" these days) and not brewed with Saaz or Hallertauer hops.
All of the barley and hops for this beer are grown on land certified by the UK's Soil Association as organic. That has to be a challenge because apparently there is not a lot of acreage worldwide devoted to organic hop production, restricting the choices of hop styles available to the brewer who wants to use organic hops. And it is probably even harder in this country. It seems organic brewing is a lot bigger in Europe than North America -- the Fish Brewing Company in Olympia, Washington has a line of organic beers but that is pretty much it on this side of the Atlantic, while the UK and Germany have several organic breweries.
I would be happy to support organic brewers. And if there were organic homebrew ingredients available, I'd give it a try myself. So how about it, barley and hop growers? Let's get this trend started.
