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

Fuggle is an English hop cultivar. Sometimes considered an English landrace, Fuggles were seedling selected in England in 1875. The true Fuggle (English) is sometimes considered a noble hop, and while it is sometimes considered inferior to Golding hop varieties such as the famous East Kent Goldings, Fuggle's flavor and mild, spicy, woody aroma are deeply characteristic of English beer.

Fuggle has suffered from wilts of late, and has largely been replaced by newer varieties. Fuggle provides a full British style palate and can be used alone, but is often blended with East Kent Goldings.

Fuggles and related varieties have been used around the world under various names, from Styrian Goldings in Slovenia to Tettnanger in the United States.
