Hallertauer Tradition is a German hop that is great for German style beers. Originally bred because of it's resistance to disease at the Hüll Hop Research Institute in Germany in 1993. Heritage of Hallertau, Saaz and unknown varieties.
Lubelska has heritage from Saaz which come through in the fine aroma characteristics. Despite being mostly used by Polish breweries, this hop originated in Zatec, Czechoslovakia.
Lucan was a clonal selection of another Czechoslovakian hop, Zatecky Krajovy, made by the Hop Research Institute in Zatec, Czechoslovakia. One of the oldest Czechoslovakian recognized varieties, it is grown in limited acreage. Very closely related to Saaz.
United States version of Saaz was started from a Czechoslovakian Saaz seedling which was received by United States Department of Agriculture in 1973. Difficult to grow and a low yield. Saaz (US) is expected to be related to Hersbrucker and Spalt.
Sirem was a clone of Zatecky Krajovy which is a presumed Saaz clone at the Hop Research Institute in Zalec, Yugoslavia. Based on this heritage Sirem has pleasant noble aroma. Pour growth rate and yield have led to it only being grown in limited acreage in Czechoslovakia but exported under a variety of aliases: Saaz, Bohemian Red, and/or Aurum.
Grown in the Spalt region of Germany, Spalt is a natural hop and has a mild and pleasant character. Part of the Saaz family. A classic hop for German style beers. Due to Spalt being a natural hop, this hop may date back as far back as 8th century. It was the first hop granted the German hop seal in the 16th century.
Spalter Select is a more disease resistant version and replacement for Spalt released in 1993. It was bred in Hull, Germany and is a cross between Splat and Hallertau. Spalter Select was released in 1991 by the Hop Research Center of Hull.
Sterling was bred by United States Department of Agriculture in 1990, released in 1998. Sterling is typically considered an aroma hop but may be used for bittering. It was cultivated to be a replacement for Saaz due to unreliable availability. The hop is a bit of a mutt (or you could say complex) with heritage from Saaz (50%), Cascade (25%), Brewer's Gold, Early Green as well as other Eurpean varieties.
Styrian Celeia, almost a carbon copy of Fuggle hops, is a low alpha varietal with traditional European aroma. It is a triploid from Styrian Golding, Styrian Aurora and wild Slovenian hop. Not well received, therefore isn't wildly grown.
Sunbeam is a cross from Saaz and open pollination by Dr. Al Haunold in 1990 at the Hop experimental farm, East Farm, Corvallis, OR. Considered an ornamental diploid plant, it was never meant for commercial production, but the Saaz-like aroma makes it great for lagers. The plan is sensitive to sunlight due to reduced chlorophyll content, therefore semi-shade is needed to keep the leaves from shriveling and browning.
Saaz lineage grant Sylva perfect suitability for lagers and pilsners. Bred in 1997 by Hop Products Australia.
Tettnanger, named for the town in Germany that it was developed: Tettnang around 1844. Evidence can be found that it goes all the way back to 1150. Appropriate for any German style beer. There are US, Australian and Swiss versions of this hop that are somewhat different.
This is the US version of German Tettnanger that came from a Swiss cultivar. Likened more to Saaz then Tettnanger.
Universal has an unknown heritage but it expected to be a Saaz clone. Developed at the Hop Research Institute in Zatec, Czechoslovakia. No longer grown commercially in Czechoslovakia but grown in the United States since 1988, becoming a darling on the craft beer since since the 1990s.
Wuerttemberger is a German hop that is possibly related to Saaz and Tettnanger. It is no longer grown commercially.
