Cluster is the oldest hop variety grown in the U.S. Until the late 1970’s, Cluster was one of only a few varieties growing in the U.S. and accounted for most of the country’s hop acreage.

It is an excellent general purpose hop with well-balanced 
bittering potential and aroma properties.

The storage stability of its alpha acids is among the best in the world.
