6 facts you didn't know about hops:

  1. The flower of the hop plant is what gives beers their bitterness.

  2. Only the female plants produce the flower which is located separately from the male plants in hop plantations. This is because, if the male plantations were to pollinate the flowers, they would produce seeds and therefore would no longer be useful for brewing.

  3. The largest hop-producing countries are Germany, the United States, China, and the Czech Republic.

  4. Noble hops are softer and less bitter compared to other varieties.

  5. Hops are from the same family as cannabis.

  6. Hops in pellets achieve 10% more yield.
