Hop: Bramling


Bramling has been grown extensively since 1865 after it was found by a farm bailiff, Smith, on Musgrave Hilton's farm at Bramling in the parish of Ickham near Centerbury, England and is of unknown pedigree.

Bramling was a major hop in England until the early 20th century but, due to increasingly low yields, it gradually has disappeared. Still grown in Canada for breweries interested in its aroma.
