Cobb’s Golding, is a product of Canterbury Whitebine. Introduced in 1881 by Mr. John Cobb, it is among the varieties known as ‘Goldings’. A high-yielding aroma hop, it bears a classic English flavor and is lightly hoppy. In the past, it was in demand for copper and dry hopping in traditional English ales though its production has been curtailed now due to a susceptibility to wilt and mildew. It is known for its exquisite and delicate aroma.

A Herefordshire Hop Paradise
Brook House Farm has a long history of world-class, award-winning hop cultivation, thanks to our rich, red, Herefordshire soil.
Now, with the craft beer and brewing industry thriving, we have invested in one of Europe’s biggest and most advanced hop-harvesting facilities.
We currently have capacity to harvest and process hundreds of acres of hops every year, using the latest technology that ensures no exhaust fumes mix with the air used to dry our hops.
We encourage beneficial insects to minimize pesticide use and are passionate about protecting and nurturing the land we use, while also pioneering research into more sustainable and ecological farming methods.
This modern approach to processing is just one example of our commitment to giving brewers the very best raw ingredients to make the very best beers.
At Brook House farm the hop fields have full irrigation to ensure that the crop yields and size of cones are not effected by hot dry summers. This combined with their on site hop processing and pelletising ensure that the product quality is the best from an English hop farm.
