Alpha rating: 9.5-11.5%. Dual-purpose hop (bittering and aroma as well as an excellent choice for dry-hopping). The light citrus aroma works especially well in pale ales and IPA's. Similar to Cascade, it is sometimes called the "super" cascade but it definitely stands on its own.

This is the hop you desire if clean crisp IPA's and pales are your preference. You can't go wrong with Centennial as it compliments many different beer styles.

Hop Substitutions: include Cascade Commercial beers utilizing Centennial hops include Bell's Two Hearted Ale and Bell's Hopslam.

Hops are hardy in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 3 through 8.

How To Plant Hop Plants:
  • Choose the location in which you want to plant your hops. The area you choose will need to get at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day and have good drainage.
  • Twine for the hops to grow on. (A bine is a climbing plant that climbs by its shoots. It is distinct from a vine, which climbs using tendrils or suckers.)
  • Vertical space. The bines may stretch 25 feet or longer into the air. Possible ways to grow your hops are on a tall trellis near your house, or a tall pole using hop twine.
  • Planted hops will grow well on an 18-foot trellis and can grow vigorously when limited to 12 - 15 feet of a trellis.
  • Prepare soil to be loose and free from large clumps. Remove any debris, such as stones and weeds. Remove all weeds near the root to prevent the weeds from returning. Fertilize the soil with bone meal or blood meal and make sure the soil is loose and worked at a depth of 12 inches or more.
  • Create a mound of soil for each rhizome that you will be planting, about 3 feet apart so they have plenty of room to grow.
  • If you plan to grow more than one variety of hops, plant the mixed varieties at least 5 feet apart.
  • Dig a 4-inch hole in each mound and lay the rhizome into the hole horizontally, with the root side down.
  • Loosely pack the soil down over the plant and cover with straw or mulch to prevent weed growth. Keep the soil consistently moist until the vines begin to sprout.

Centennial Hop Rhizomes

Well it's growing

Hard to give a good review until harvest time. But the Rhizome was planted within a couple days of getting it. Once I started seeing some sprouts. I built a trellis. I just started training the vines to the twine. The vine is about 6 inches further up the twine from where I started it in only a couple days.

Centennial Hops Rhizomes

I purchased 2 Centennial Rhizomes in late April 2021, They arrived on time, and I planted them a couple days later. They been planted for a little under three weeks (in Maryland) and are doing well. One has three shoots currently, the other has 5 shoots. I'm hopeful they'll continue growing well@

New to growing hops

I purchased three different varieties of Hops to try out this year and this is one of them. I literally just planted these 6 days ago and it appears that all is going well so far. I noticed some little green growth coming from the soil and I'm amazed at how quickly these have come up. I'm looking forward to see how things go this year! Cheers!
