Profile

Brewer's Gold hops, a classic and time-honored variety, have been a popular choice among homebrewers and professional brewers alike for many years. This hop variety has its origins in England, where it was first selected in 1919 by Professor Ernest Stanley Salmon at Wye College. Being the result of open pollination of a wild hop that was sourced from Morden, Manitoba, Brewer's Gold boasts a distinctive pedigree that has contributed to its lasting appeal. Despite its English origins, this hop has also gained popularity in other beer-producing countries, such as Germany and the United States, where it has been used to create various regional brews.

Brewer's Gold hops are known for their robust and unique flavor profile, which is characterized by a mix of spicy, fruity, and earthy notes. With an alpha acid content typically ranging from 6-9%, these hops can contribute a moderate to high level of bitterness to the beer. This makes them a versatile choice for a wide range of styles, such as English ales, stouts, porters, and even certain lagers. In addition to providing bitterness, Brewer's Gold hops also impart a distinct aroma that combines black currant, fruit, and spicy notes. As a homebrewer, you can experiment with Brewer's Gold in your recipes to create bold and flavorsome brews that showcase the unique characteristics of this hop variety.
