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

Bare root hop plants are available from late November until early April. Dates will vary depending on the weather and ground conditions however, we hope to start lifting from the field by November 1st. The best time to transplant hop plants lies during this period whilst the plant is dormant. Plants in 2 Litre pots are available from May until September but are available for UK mainland delivery only.
