Why The Landrace Hops?
Landrace: a local variety of a species of plant or animal that has distinctive characteristics arising from development and adaptation over time to conditions of a localised region
These are hops of their place, the place in which they first grew. A natural hybrid of two plants forming into a new one with new characteristics, adapting to its land and then coming to be a defining product of that land, then defining the local beers, producing the distinct flavours and aromas of classic beer styles, giving the unique accent of one nation’s beer compared to their neighbour. That character begins with the hops.
Almost every hop in the world ultimately descends from the famous landrace hops of Golding, Fuggle, Tettnang, Hallertau Mittelfrüh, Hersbrucker, Spalt, Saaz, Strisselspalt and Cluster. We think they are the most important hops in the world.
