The first in our 2015 range of single hop beers is available from 1 February.

The Single Hop Series has been inspired by a Lonely Hearts column in the newspaper.  Single Hops are in search of Hop Lovers and this is where you will find them.

Throughout 2015 we will brew a range of 8 Single Hop beers with hops from Kent, America, Australia and Germany.

February – Sovereign

Sovereign is a hedgerow variety bred from an open pollination in 1995 at Horticulture Research International (HRI), Wye College in the UK and released in 2006.  It is the granddaughter of Pioneer and works well with Goldings in British bitters and pale ales.

It has intense aroma characteristics similar to Fuggles but with more tropical fruit notes.
