Hop: Atlas


Atlas is a bred by the Hop Research Institute in Zalec, Slovenia, Yugoslavia (Dr. Tone Wagner) and released in the 1970s. It is a cross between Brewer's Gold and a Yugoslavian male.

Together with Aurora, Ahil, and Apolon was considered to be Super Styrian hops when released. This meant they were similar to Syrian (Fuggle) but had a higher alpha content. But, in fact, it is bread from Brewer's Gold, making the classification mute.

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.
