    Kerry Templeton | “New hop cultivars with unique flavours for premium beer”

    As part of this week’s “Change Maker” show of Sarah’s Country, Kerry Templeton from Plant & Food Research outlines the new hop cultivars with unique flavours developed for our premium craft beer markets.


    New Zealand has some of the most sought-after hops in the world. Not only does the hop industry benefit from New Zealand's reputation for environmental sustainability, but our hops have unique flavours brewers, particularly those with a taste for something different, search for.


    The hop breeding programme has pioneered the release of a series of highly successful seedless triploid cultivars. The breeding programme focuses on developing high performing bittering-type hops as well as novel aromatic-type hops which impart unique flavours to beer.
