America’s original hop is still the one for throwback and historical recipes.

Breeding/DevelopmentUSA. Cluster is the oldest hop variety grown in the US, and until  relatively recently it accounted for the majority of the acreage as well. The prevailing theory of its origin is pollination of hop varieties cultivated by English and Dutch settlers by indigenous wild hops.

Brewing ApplicationWith balanced bittering and pungent aromatics, Cluster adds to the authenticity of historical recipes as well as throwback American lager styles.

Sensory: Somewhat strong and largely underrated. Spicy and floral with an earthy blackcurrant undertone.
