You can use anything really. Do you want it to taste more "American" or more "European"?

I agree with mashani that a little more information on what you're looking for would help, but I'll just toss a suggestion into the mix:

Consider the noble hop varieties, such as Hallertau or Saaz. They're used in pilsners, and they're not all that aggressive, like some of the Northwest hops can be.

Chance, Mash and Dave are right on with their suggestions. This hops reference chart might help you to see what's available and what different hops are used in what styles of beer.

I hope you find it helpful! :chug:
