Traditional European aroma variety for lager, earthy hop flavour. Saaz hops have long been established as a high quality European aroma variety. Traditionally used for European lager type beers, they have now been used successfully in the UK, imparting that earthy lager hop flavour found in the original Czech Budvar.
The only hop you should be using if you wish to brew an authentic Czech pilsner at home.
Be sure to check out our videos filmed at the Budvar Brewery to learn more about how important this hop is in Czech beer.
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.
