Now in rotation: Revolution No. 006, the latest release in Firestone Walker’s Luponic Distortion revolving hop series, featuring yet another trailblazing blend of distinctive hops.

True to form, Luponic Distortion Revolution No. 006 is driven by a mix of seven different hop varieties, led by two hops grown in the up-and-coming region of Michigan.

Northwest meets Midwest
Luponic Distortion Revolution No. 006 is the first-ever West Coast production beer to focus on hops grown in the Great Lakes State.
“This beer showcases what happens when you take two familiar Northwest hop varieties and grow them 2,000 miles to the east,” says Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. “The typical piney, dank attributes of these hops are transformed into something much brighter, with a racy citrus quality that adds yet another new layer to the lore of Luponic Distortion.”

The journey of this beer dates back several years, when Matt befriended Nunzino Pizza, founder of Michigan’s Hop Head Farms. They met through mutual Midwest connections, and later toured numerous German hop farms together in 2013. “These guys are really committed to the German style of cultivation and kilning,” he says. “Their hops have been on my radar for several years now, and I’ve just been waiting for the chance.”
