Early Bird

Originally Amos's Early Bird after Alfred Amos of Wye it was selected in 1887 from a garden of Btamlings, the bine is green with red mottling. It tends to be uneven in its timing of coming into hop and the potential resin content of its cones can vary considerably. Early Brid usually produces a moderate yield of high quality.
Goldings consist of a group of traditional English Varieties, which have been cultivated for a long time tend to be named after either a hop grower or the parish they were cultivated. Goldings are recognised as having the most typical English aroma, there is special demand for these hops for use in copper hopping and dry hopping of traditional ales. Goldings are also found to be useful for late hopping lagers when a delicate aroma is required.
