Hop: Alliance


Alliance is a cross of Whitebread Golding and a C3 male, bred at Wye College in England in the late 1950's/early 1960's. The C3 male was a cross involving a sister of Brewer's Gold.

Initially bred as a replacement for Fuggle. No longer grown commercially as yields were slightly worse than Fuggle.

Did you know?
  • Dwarf variety hops grow shorter in height than traditional varieties but, importantly, produce the same yield. This combination makes harvest easier.
Recently added hops
  • Storage: is based on the percentage of alpha acids remaining after 6 months at 20*F.
  • Oil composition percetages are based on the total percentage of oil in the hop. Example: 10 - 20% means that for the specific oil it is 10 - 20% of the overall oil make up.
