Liberty is half-sister to Crystal, Ultra, and Mt. Hood. She comes from Hallertauer Mittlefrüher and a disease resistant male. Homebrewers should be advised that, due to Liberty’s poor storage stability, they need to be obtained and used fresh. Liberty’s yield is low but still enjoys popularity, especially in the U.S. Harvest Moon Brewery uses Liberty liberally in their Full Moon Pale Ale along with Cascade. Liberty is likened to noble hops characteristics and sports an alpha acid content between 3-6%.
