Lallemand releases LalBrew Pomona™, The yeast for modern, hop-forward beers, on June 4th


Lallemand Brewing is pleased to announce the upcoming release of its latest innovation LalBrew Pomona™ Modern Hybrid IPA Yeast. LalBrew Pomona™ is a hybrid yeast that was selected for flavor and fermentation performance in hoppy beers. Named after the goddess of fruit trees, LalBrew Pomona™ produces a unique and juicy flavor profile with notes of peach, citrus, and tropical fruits. This strain was developed by our partner Escarpment Laboratories, an innovative Canadian yeast company and industry leader in solution-based yeast selection and hybridization.

“We used yeast breeding to cross a highly aromatic strain with a super robust and reliable strain. Then we used a process called adaptive lab evolution to adapt it to the unique fermentation conditions of IPAs, enhancing biotransformation and haze.”  

Richard Priess, CO-founder of Escarpment Laboratories 

The result of this research and selection is a fruity, stress-tolerant, and robust strain that enhances biotransformation and haze for modern IPA styles. This product will be available in 500g as of June 4th and 11g sachets in the coming months.  

Since their introduction into the craft market around 2003, hazy IPAs have firmly cemented themselves as a pervasively popular and highly demanded style in the brewing universe. With its carefully selected flavor profile, LalBrew Pomona™ answers the market’s ever-present demand from brewers chasing the divine balance of fruit and hop flavors. Commercial trials have received rave reviews, and we anticipate this to be one of our most beloved strains for many years to come. 

In a nutshell, why is LalBrew Pomona™ a game-changer? 

  • High biotransformation potential
  • Unique flavor profile with notes of peach, citrus, and tropical fruit
  • Selected for fermentation in high-gravity and highly hopped wort
  • Haze-positive for stable haze

Robust and repitchable
