Perle is generally perceived as an excellent aroma hop, with characteristics as good as those of Hallertau Mittlefruh but with a higher Alpha Acid content and better yield.
The original Perle was created in Germany sometime during the 1960’s or early-mid 1970’s from Northern Brewer and a German male. It was released to the public in 1978. Perle is said to have a pleasant aroma, elements of mint and pine with a hint of spice.

A quality product:
the most important ingredient in brewing
BarthHaas wants to allow brewers like you to concentrate on what you do best – creating first-class beers. To achieve this aim, our approach to quality assurance is uniquely comprehensive. We work with our growers to ensure that the hops you use could not be of a higher quality. Find out more about how we guarantee optimum quality.
The highest standards for the best hops: we are satisfied with nothing less. Because hops are one of the most important ingredients in the brewing process. To meet this demand, BarthHaas has introduced a comprehensive quality management system (QMS) [RS1] based on the proven ISO 9001:2015 standard. Our QM system also includes a concept that guarantees optimum product safety on the basis of international HACCP guidelines. An important focus of this concept is the BarthHaas test guarantee [RS3], which is unique in the hop industry to date.
We contract and source our hops from the finest merchants and farms around the world, ensuring you get the chance to brew with the same high quality product that professional breweries use.
Using mylar bags which prevent light degradation of the hops, flushing the bags with nitrogen to remove oxygen and cold storage of them until ordered by you, ensures the hops are as fresh as possible.
