Product Description

Bramling Cross is a rather rare breed and is mostly available in the UK. First harvested in 1927 at Wye College its lineage is a cross between Golding and a wild Manitoban (Canadian) hop. It is considered well suited to cask conditioned recipes as well as Christmas and fruit beers.Perhaps one brewer says it best when they speak of Bramling Cross as being "elegant, refined, assured, (boring) and understated”. They suggest people often don't use enough of Bramling Cross to let its true flavors and eccentricities shine.When used in large quantities the fruity element in Bramling Cross springs to life. This use exhibits complex fruity notes of lemon, blackcurrant and pear, particularly when used as a late addition. Some brewers have also recorded notes of blackberries and plums.

East Kent Golding is often thought of as the ultimate English hop. Grown exclusively in Kent, England and descended from Canterbury Whitebine, it is a centuries old variety. Despite claims to the contrary, it is identical to Canterbury Golding. The two names have been used interchangeably for some time with the confusion likely stemming from its namesake. Canterbury is a town in East Kent and the hop was first brought to market there in 1790. ...
