Southern Brewer was developed after the primary South African hops variety, Golden Cluster, was ruined with black root rot. Southern Brewer is the parent of Southern Promise. It has an average 10% alpha acid content, and is used primarly for bittering, but can be used as a high alpha aroma variety as well. It has very good storability, retaining 70% AAU after 6 months. Southern Brewer was being grown too close to the equator and required supplemental grow lighting which made it more expensive to produce. Southern Promise has solved some of that problem. Not particularly distinguished in aroma or flavor.
