On Juniper

I thought this article on the use of juniper throughout the history of brewing was really interesting! I wonder if the flavors that juniper adds contributed to the development of hops with more pine or resin flavors?

I’ve got my doubts, because pine hops rarely tend to show up in modern farmhouse ales-the flavor profiles of funk and forest don’t seem to be too compatible. It does make for an interesting thought experiment, though.
