About Cascade

Developed in Oregon, USA from parentage derived from Fuggle and Serebrianker, it was released in 1971. It is the definitive hop used to produce American Pale Ales.

Breeding of Cascade

In Britain, it was introduced into production in 2002 from virus-free meristem stocks developed through Wye College and grows successfully as a tall, late-maturing hop here. It delivers the same aroma notes as the US version, although it is slightly less intense.
