Brewer’s Gold

Wye College produced Brewer’s Gold in 1919 from an open pollination with Wild Manitoba. While it is no longer a popular hop in commercial usage due to its poor storageability, it has been used to breed many fine varieties such as the super alpha Galena, as well as Nugget, Centennial, and others. For the home brewer, Brewer’s Gold is still a good choice for late bittering, with its nice spice and black currant backnotes to its flavor and aroma, and its proven vigor makes it an excellent choice for home hops growing.
