33 Books Hop Exploration Kit is designed to help beer lovers better
understand hoppy beer. It's got everything inside to take hopheads on a
hoppy holiday - just add beer.
Here's how it works:
Insert Beer. Fill each tasting glass with 4 ounces of neutral beer (industrial lagers work well).
Drop Hops. Add 2-3 drops of Bert’s Beer Baster,™ a different variety in each glass. Four different varieties are included in the set.
Taste. Compare and contrast. Use the included hop-focused beer journals to help guide your tasting.
Beer-Tasting Glasses: The shape of the glass holds just the right amount (4 oz) for a good
tasting, and feels nice in your hand. The tapered neck collects and
concentrates aroma, which is accentuated by individually laser-etched
nucleation* sites on the bottom of the glass. Glasses are labeled "A"
and "B" for easy comparison and/or spontaneous small sample size,
double-blind investigative trials.
Hop Concentrates: Four varieties of 33 Books hop concentrate are included in each kit. When you're done tasting, they're great for
amping up under-hopped beers you may encounter when traveling. They're
also great for cocktails or in home beer-making.
Hop-Focused Beer-Tasting Journals: The kit you receive includes two copies of 33 Beers: Fresh Hop Edition. The two hop-focused beer journals included each have space to record 33
different beers, giving you space for a total of 66 tastings.
Retro Click Pen: The journals are accompanied by a traditional click-style, American-made ballpoint pen.
Presentation-Ready Packaging: The box is designed with hop bale-inspired imagery on both the exterior and interior of
the box so it makes a great impression if gifted. Thanks to the hop
concentrates, it smells amazing, too!
