Hop: Cobb


Cobb has heritage of Canterbury Whitebine as it was found on the farm of John Cobb and initially introduced as Cobb's hop in 1881. It was a popular hop but is becoming increasingly difficult to find.

Since Cobb is part of the Golding family, it is named for the area/family in which it was found. This is typical for these older United Kingdom hops.
