The history of hops in beer is rooted in Hallertau hops, and the history of beer in Germany is also rooted in Hallertau hops. This German variety has a lovely, mild, and gentle flowery aroma. It is a noble variety, meaning it is a traditional, old-world variety with subtle properties. While low in alpha acids, it has been used in tried-and-true beer recipes for centuries. Many purists still use Hallertau hops in their German style beers to remain true to style and tradition. Hoppy Trails Hop Farm grows the U.S. variety of Hallertau.
