Hop Varieties: Dunav


Originating in the former Yugoslavia, Dunav was bred in the 1960’s with the intent of replacing the low-yielding Backa. However, it has never truly been accepted commercially and remains in limited production in Serbia. It is a triploid cross from Northern Brewer, Styrian Golding and a wild male. Sibling to Neoplanta and Vojvodina, Dunav tends to exhibit a variable alpha acid rate but enjoys good storage stability.
