The Hop Crisis of 2008. Yes, there was a worldwide hop crisis. In the 1990s, the cost to grow hops was more than a farmer could make selling hops. Lots of hop acreage was converted to more profitable crops. Fast forward to the craft beer craze in the mid 2000s and you have the perfect storm for a hop shortage. Out of those dark days, previously available but overlooked hops such as the Sorachi Ace were discovered. Originally developed by Sapporo brewery this hop is not only a bittering agent, but also lends lemon and pepper flavors. We recommend a beer that highlights the peppery aspect of Sorachi Ace as a wonderful complement to a peppery arugula dish.
Suggestion: Brooklyn Sorachi Ace, Brooklyn New York
Rose of Carignan – California, US
LIOCO started as a joint project between Matt Licklider and Kevin O’Connor – two friends with plenty of experience in buying and selling wine, that decided they wanted to actually make it. More than 10 years later they have led a revolution in California towards wine that speaks of place more than treatments and technology. Their 2016 Indica Rose, nicknamed strawberry diesel, was the first thought in my head when I saw the apricots, sherry vinegar, and fennel accompanying this salad. They describe the nose as “pickled watermelon, sweet tarts, and wild herbs” and the palate as “fresh rhubarb, wild strawberry, and candied orange peel”. They’re right; my recommendation? Run, don’t walk to get this in your fridge as soon as possible.
