    My son is a musician and a big Zappa fan (I was perhaps an influence). When I told him about Zappa hops I said he needed to help me determine a style and name a beer. At first I thought a brown ale and name it Brown Shoes Don't Make It. He came back a day or two later with. "Make a pilsner - call it Yellow Snow " Or a blonde ale maybe. Or a cream ale. Regardless we know what Spotify will play on brew day.

    Had my first beer with that hop last week. It's definitely a different beast, so the name does seem appropriate.

    Whatever you make, it's gotta be called "Yellow Snow"! Classic Zappa song. The only risk is that some who know the lyrics won't drink it!
    Watch out where the huskies go and don't you eat (or drink) that yellow snow
