This article discusses a specific variety of hops. For general information about selecting, using or propogating hops, see the main hop page

An older variety of Golding, Bramling is rarely if ever available to home brewers under its own name. The original was selected from the field of a farmer named Musgrave Hilton who had a farm in the English town of Bramling.

Bramling was once one of the most popular aroma hops in England, but gradually faded as higher-yielding varieties became available. Until recently, it was still grown in small amounts in England and in British Columbia, Canada, where it may be one of the cultivars sold as British Columbia Golding.

Bramling also lent its name to one of its progeny, the rare but still available Bramling Cross cultivar.
