Žatec, or Saaz, is the Czech Landrace Hop, and one of the four noble hops.


Grown around the town of Žatec since at least the 16th century, these hops are the defining flavour of Czech lager and one of the world’s most-grown varieties. These tees are printed on high-quality organic cotton.


    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 localized geographic 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 beer styles, and producing the distinct flavours and aromas of classic beer styles, that unique accent of one nation’s beer compared to their neighbour’s. That character begins with the hops.


    More product info, including sizing and returns, coming soon. These tees will be printed on unisex medium fit t-shirts which are made with 100% organic cotton, which are sustainably and ethically sourced. We believe these are important qualities. We use an eco-ethical printer in North London.
