British Hops

“Hops are our world”, so says one of the international hop merchants.

However as Growers we beg to differ. We live and breathe hops. They are historical, romantic, extremely difficult and time-consuming to grow. Hops are our life, our outlook, the view from our windows and our livelihood.

There is so much to say about the humble hop. Too much for one page so depending on what you would like to know, please click on the links above:

We have used Endeavour, which is the daughter of Cascade, in a Single Hop beer; while it does have some of the same citrus flavour notes as Cascade, they are gentler and more complex with summer fruit flavours coming through as well – strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant.
