Brewer's Gold

This is a sister seedling of Bullion Hop, and has a simular extraordinary vigour of growth. It is, however, sensitive to soil conditions and develops its full vigour only on a deep, well-drained soils of the brick-earth type. The aroma is of the 'American' type, but this is not so strongly developed as it is in Bullion Hop. In spite of its heavy yield and the richness of its cones, the acreagre of Brewer's Gold in the UK declined throughout the 1960s owed to its lateness in ripening and sensitivity. Since then however, popularity has increased as small micro-breweries favour the strong fragrences for richer flavours.

Availability

Plants in 2 litre pots are available from late May until September, for UK mainland delivery only due to transport implications. Bare root hops plants are available for wider distribution from November.
