I know there must be a lotta beer homebrewers out there looking for those hard-to-find hop rhizomes such as Amarillo, Simcoe, Columbus, Warrior, Tomahawk, etc., etc.
Let me know if anyone finds 'em, please!

Have you tried Freshops?
They are one of the best for obscure hop varieties.
Yep, and all the usual suspects!
Standard answer is that all these are one-owner products and not available to the general public.
Sure, but somebody’s gotta have their hands on them by now, and are getting out to some few at least.
Question is who and where?
I know this is very old. I just happened to stumble across it searching on google. I believe all those varieties are trade marked and unable to get except for the tomahawk. Tomahawk has finally been deleted as well as zeus. They are actually columbus strains and are no different in their makeup. So sometimes you can find it listed as ctz or just columbus, ctz obviously abbreviated as columbus, tomahawk, zeus. You can find the columbus strain on fresh hops and others locations. If someone finds these trademarked rhizomes on the black market I would like to know about it.
