Hüller Bitterer

Developed in the late 1960’s and released in 1978, Hüller Bitterer has the distinction of being the first wilt resistant variety to come from the German Hüll hop breeding program. Descended from Northern Brewer, it is an excellent dual-use hop and is still known for its clean bittering character. In commercial use, it has now largely been replaced with other wilt resistant varieties, specifically Perle.
