First entering commercial production in 1964, Lubelska-Pulawy is a Polish-grown variety descended from the original Czech hop Lubelski, or Lublin as it is sometimes known. It was grown by the Hop Institute in Pulawy, Poland in an effort to better mold the variety to local conditions and increase alpha potential. It is said to have pleasant European characteristics, unsurprising given its Saaz roots.
