Science of Hops and Brewing

Clackamas County MG Monthly Lecture – Dr. Shaun Townsend, PhD. OSU

Monday, May 14, 2018 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Aroma Hop Breeding Program is developing new hop cultivars which are adapted for Oregon growing conditions, with a focus on essential oil quantity and quality. Ultimately, new aroma hop cultivars that appeal to the craft beer industry will be available for Oregon hop growers.

Shaun Townsend is an Assistant Professor and Senior Research in the Hop Breeding and Genetics program at OSU. He works closely with the Food Science and Technology Department to characterize the chemical profile of breeding selections, evaluate new techniques for evaluating the brewing potential of experimental genotypes and explores the role agronomic management might play in essential oil quantity and quality. Shaun also works closely with hop geneticists to identify and adapt new molecular biology technologies to hop breeding.


*Presentation counts as 1 hour continuing garden education/recertification credit for Metro-area Master Gardeners
