Some facts related to hops I learned while reading about beers I (mostly) don’t drink:
- InBev uses well over 50% of the Saaz hops produced in the Žatec region of the Czech Republic in brewing Stella Artois. Proof.
- Heineken has more than 21 bitterness units (IBU) and 5.1% alcohol by volume, according to random market sampling. Heineken Premium Light, meanwhile, has half the bitterness and 3.3% abv.
- Samuel Adams Boston Lager has 31 IBU and about 4.9% abv, according to random market sampling. Sam Adams Light has 10 IBU and 4% abv. Proof.
Something I thought you needed to know.
