Hallertauer Northern Brewer Hops
Northern Brewer was originally developed in England in 1934 but is now largely grown in Germany. German-grown it’s considered identical to the original UK-bred variety though subtle differences attributable to the different growing regions may be evident.
Also grown in notable quantity in the US though this variety is now genetically distinct from the original. In brewing, it is useful as both a bittering and aroma hop but is used predominantly as an early addition by commercial brewers in Germany
