South African Hops
South Africa produces some of the most unique hop varieties in the world. Hops have been grown in the Southern Cape of South Africa since the 1920s, with bittering hops being the focus for many years. However, recent advancements in breeding have given rise to aroma varieties that are creating new frontiers for brewers to explore.
Bred for the unique growing conditions along the southern coast where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet, today’s South African hops deliver novel profiles as well as exciting variations on in-demand sensory notes to excite and intrigue consumers already familiar with popular citrus-and-tropical varieties.
