HOPS US BREWERS GOLD 1oz – an Antique Hop and a Native American (DISCONTINUED) SENDING GALENA

$3.00

Brewer’s Gold is one of the old timers of the hop world.  BG is a Native American, bred in 1919 from Wild Manitoba hops.  Mainly used as a bittering hop, but the intense black currant spice aroma is very nice in Belgian ales.  Resiny and spicy bittering hop for use in a variety of beers from English ales to German styles and farmhouse ales.  Somewhat in disuse, Brewers’s Gold lives in the shadow of more modern Super-Alpha varieties, it’s children are much more popular than the parents.  BG was used to breed notable varieties like Galena, Nugget, Centennial and many others.  BG is a sibling of Bullion.
