ABN Talks El Dorado Technical Webinar promotional flyer with a picture of hopsPresented in partnership with CLS Farms.

Usable in almost all beer styles, El Dorado® hops elicit aromas and flavors of tropical fruitiness like stone fruit, hard candy, pear, watermelon, and pineapple. A dual-purpose hop due to its high alpha acids means brewers can use them throughout the brewing process.
