Brewers Gold

British composure in Alsace. Brewers Gold, which is an English hop variety, has been produced in Alsace, France since the 1960s. It is traditionally considered as a variety that imparts bitterness, but has responded to the Alsace terroir by losing some bitterness and increasing its aromas. The Alsace-grown variety is highly sought after by Northern French and Belgian brewers.

Technical features

The Brewers Gold variety was developped in 1934 and became extremely popular in the 1950s thanks to Ballantine XXX ale.
Brewers Gold has balanced aromas with spicy and fruity notes, and with a black currant dominance. It lends itself to experiments with late hopping, and even dry hopping.
