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

Until the growth of the American hop industry in the Pacific Northwest, the only Golding hops grown in North America were British Columbia Goldings or BC Goldings grown in British Columbia, Canada; it is not clear what the exact cultivar of these hops was, although some B.C. Golding hops may have been Bramling.

It appears that Golding hops are no longer grown commercially in British Columbia. Homebrewers may substitute the English or American versions instead.
