Our ultimate goal is to image the «polar aroma» coming from Finnish hops. We will make a selective call and collect 1000 hops. Based on the results of a series of experiments we will recommend 10 best ones among the bests. Beside for crafts beer and brewing industry, possibilities to use hops for fiber extraction, as a food, for human health beneficial compounds will be explored.


Finnish hops will be imaged for the first time. Selection of the best ones from Finland will enable building solid base for diversification of agricultural production, series of novel craft beers and beers, exploitation of waste for fiber as well as a search for human health beneficial compounds. Images and results will be communicated via diverse public channels thus bringing Finnish hops to the world.
