Herald hops were one of a first wave of dwarf hops introduced to the industry. It was released in 1996 alongside sisters Pilgrim and Pioneer. Some brewers were initially reluctant to use Herald despite its clean bitterness and a nice nose of orange and grapefruit. Today Herald is employed by a multitude of craft breweries, particularly in the UK.
