So, what is houblons?

Houblons, also known as hops, are a crucial ingredient in the brewing of beer. These cone-shaped flowers of the Humulus lupulus plant impart a distinctive bitter flavor and aroma to beer, while also acting as a natural preservative. In addition to their use in brewing, houblons have also been traditionally used for medicinal purposes due to their antibacterial and sedative properties. They contain compounds known as alpha and beta acids, which are responsible for the bitter flavor and help to balance the sweetness of the malt. The choice of houblons can greatly influence the character of a beer, making it a vital component of the brewing process.
