Chelan is a privately patented bittering hop and daughter to Galena. Developed by John I. Haas, Inc. and grown exclusively in Washington State, it was released in 1994 and has found popular use in male styles of ales – particularly American style ales.
Despite being comparable in style, Chelan enjoys higher yields and a higher alpha percentage than its parent Galena. With very high beta acids also, Chelan imparts a strong, almost brutish bitterness.
