Brewer's Gold

Regular price $5.00

Description: Brewer's Gold hops were selected by Ernest Stanley Salmon at Wye College in England in 1919 and were the result of the open pollination of a wild hop sourced from Morden, Manitoba. For brewers wishing to experiment, Brewer's Gold is a good choice for late bittering with desirable notes of spice and blackcurrant. Brewer's Gold's main claim to fame is arguably it's direct relation to most modern super-alpha hops. It was used to breed notable varieties like Galena, as well as Nugget, Centennial and many others and is still used for breeding today.
