Cover Story (view full-size image): Copper-based fungicides (CBFs) are used in agriculture for the mitigation of fungal pathogens. Previous research has found that the use of CBFs on hop plants significantly increases the total copper content of the harvested hops. Copper is a known catalyst in the generation of reactive oxygen species and can negatively impact the quality and stability of beer when present in sufficient quantities. In this study, we aim to evaluate the degree to which copper from CBF-treated hops adds to the total transition metal load of beer and the impact that excess copper may have on the stability of those beers.
