Does It Matter Where Hops Are Grown?

Thursday, June 29, Ruhstaller Shop: R&D Brewery & Taproom, 6 p.m., no cover

Ruhstaller Beer is hosting a release party and taste test showcasing four new beers brewed at the same time, using the same single-hop recipe, but grown in different areas. They say all beers should taste the same. But is that really so? It’s why you’ll be there to judge. They’ll pour 12 beers in total, including the Does it Matter brews, and two small batch beers from their R&D brewery. Live music and food truck grub on-site. 800 Business Park Drive, Suite G in Dixon,
