British Columbia Golding

British Columbia Golding is produced, as one might expect, in Canada. Before the hops industry was fully established in the Pacific Northwest, BC Golding was the only North American-grown Golding. Its alphas are low so it’s bittering capacity is mild at best while it puts forward an earthy aroma profile and flavors of smooth, rounded spice. BC Golding makes a good, British-style pale and has also been noted for it’s successful use in Stouts and Porters.
