Wild Hop Wins Hop Award

News: January 2016

A variety of hop found growing wild has been named overall winner of the British Hop Awards for 2015, run by the Institute of Brewing & Distilling.

The Sussex hop, named after the county in which it was discovered, was found by Peter Cyster, whose family has been growing hops since 1900. Cyster cultivated and propagated the hop and it is now grown by AH Hoad at Gate Court, Northiam, and used by brewers such as Harveys.

The hop is said to have earthy, grassy and minty flavour notes.
