Use In Brewing

Bramling Cross is a dual purpose hop of considerable character. Its distinctive “American” aroma put many brewers off this variety in its early years. It has a strong spicy/blackcurrant flavour and good alpha characteristics. Bramling Cross has now made something of a comeback in traditional cask-conditioned beers because of its very distinctive characteristics and has done very well in all styles of beer.

Origin/History

First harvested in 1927 by professor E.S. Salmon at Wye College in England, Bramling Cross is a hop derived from a cross between Golding and Manitoban. Originally fairly rare to find commercially, Bramling Cross has recently gained traction and popularity. Despite its growing demand, it is still primarily available in the UK.
