The Elsaesser’s commercial production is confined to very limited acreage in the Alsace region of France. It most likely originated from an old land race in the same area. Elsaesser has an aroma akin to that of noble European varieties. Charlemagne’s father, Peppin the Younger, was said to have had a hops garden in the 7th century. Even though the use of hops in beer isn’t recorded until the 9th century, perhaps todays Elsaesser hops are a descendant of the same variety that graced that very garden.
