Brewer’s Gold

United Kingdom / Pellet Hops / 8.0%


Brewer’s Gold hops were selected in England in 1919 and were the result of the open pollination of a wild hop. Despite its initial popularity, the advent of super-alpha hop varieties in the 1980’s rendered Brewer’s Gold largely redundant from a commercial perspective. For brewer’s wishing to experiment though, Brewer’s Gold is still a good choice for late bittering with desirable notes of spice and blackcurrant. It is also nearly identical to sister selection Bullion. Brewer’s Gold’s main claim to fame is arguably its 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. Best for - Ale, American Pale Ale, Bitter, Barley Wine, Imperial Stout
