Abstract
Hops are one of the key ingredients in beer production and mainly impart bitterness, aroma, and the final flavour to beer. The specific hop characteristics of beer largely depend on the hop variety (or combination of varieties) used and the type of hop addition and technologies applied. However, the hop characteristics could also be affected by the growing conditions and the cultivation practices used, in general terms referred to as ‘terroir’. In this study, the impact of hop terroir on the aroma- and flavour-related characteristics in beer was comprehensively investigated for a broad set of commercially relevant hop varieties. By combining the generated genetic and biochemical data, the specific effects of both variety and terroir on the hop brewing characteristics and, consequently, on the sensory attributes of beer were elucidated. The knowledge and insights gained in the course of this study, as well as the tools developed for genetic and biochemical differentiation of hop batches, are ready for use in further research and for exploitation by the hop and brewing industries.
