Millennium, as you might expect, was released in 2000. Bred from Nugget and Columbus, it was with the purpose of producing greater disease resistance and storage stability to replace some of the older hops, so popular with U.S. breweries, but which have poor storability. It also has higher alpha acids and higher cone production per acre yield than many other, more popular varieties. It works well for American-style ales.
