Hallertau Tradition Craft Beer Hops Hallertauer Tradition is an aroma hop that was created in Germany and released in 1993. One of the benefits of this hop variety is the speed in which it grows. At the same time though it is a low yielding hop. The hop is true to German styles with characteristics that align with German brewing tradition.

Used in German style beers like Munich Lagers, Oktoberfest, Bock, Kolsch and Pilsners the Hallertauer is a versatile and well used hop for its aroma characteristics. With low alpha acid content the Hallertauer Tradition does not make for a good bittering hop.

The flavours that come from this hop are traditional German hop bitterness with an earthy and floral character with a defined sweetness. The earthy tones are exemplified in beers such as Oktoberfest and Bock styles and are the source of much of these beers’ distinct aromas.
