English Hops

Whitbread Golding enjoys a robust flavor and hoppiness, particularly in comparison to other Golding varieties. With its pleasant, fruity, European-style aromatics, it has traditionally been very popular in England. When used as an early addition, Whitbread Golding features a sharp and pronounced bitterness. Mid-boil it’s flavor profile tends toward a sweet fruitiness and as an aroma addition, herbal, woody aromas spring forward. First selected in 1911 by hop grower Edward Albert White, it is the result of open pollinated Bate’s Brewer. Its current name however was not coined until after the Whitbread Brewing Company acquired the farm on which it was raised some years later. It also wasn’t until 1953 that the variety was officially released for production. Hailed as a savior variety by growers in Kent in the 1950’s, Whitbread Golding’s resistance to Verticillium Wilt helped cement it as an industry favorite after the disease devastated Golding and Fuggle crops in the region at that time.
