Yeoman

Yeoman Hops, sometimes called Wye Yeoman, was bred at Wye College in England in the 1970's. Its precise pedigree is unknown, although it is compared to Target Hops. It is no longer available on the open markets, but it has left its footprint on the hops universe. Yeoman Hops as a seedling was taken from Wye and was named Phoenix Hops, which was seen as a disease resistant replacement for Challenger. Yeoman Hops is also a grand parent of Australian Super Pride Hops, which is dubbed as such for its astounding yield and high alpha content compared to Pride of Ringwood. And finally, Pioneer Hops is also related to Yeoman.

Yeoman Hops has high alpha acid content at 12.0%-16.0%, which is very high for the Hops Breeding Program at Wye. This variety is a bittering type, and comes with elevated levels of myrcene oil. Yeoman had its day for brewing beer, and was ideal for English style ales needing some hop kick.

Availability

Bare root hop plants are available from November 1st until April 15th. 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.
