Brewer's Gold is primarily a bittering agent and commonly used in lighter style ales, although it works well in lager beers as well. This USDA variety accession number 19001 hops, has a moderate alpha acid rating at 5.5% - 7.8%. Brewer's Gold also carries a relatively high overall oil make up including high levels of Myrcene (37% - 40%), Humulene (29% - 31%), and Caryophyllene (37% - 40%) oils.

Wye College in England gave rise to this hops variety in 1919 by crossing Wild Manitoba BB1 with open pollination. After the super-alpha offspring were created, Brewer's Gold was largely discontinued by many farmers in favor of the other varieties. And brewers demand waned. This bittering or late addition hops has a spice to its flavor and aroma.
