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

A traditional landrace cultivar from the Hersbruck region north of Munich, this hop is often referred to as simply Hersbrucker (probably its traditional name) or Hersbrucker Late (the English translation of "Hersbrucker Spät". When grown in its traditional area, it would be referred to as Hersbruck Hersbrucker or Hersbruck Hersbrucker Spät.

Hersbrucker came to prominence when verticillium wilt first threatened the most famous hop in the Hallertau, Hallertau Hallertauer Mittelfrüher. Hersbrucker hops, which are more resistant to verticillium wilt, were planted extensively as a replacement and achieved some success, until it was replaced by newer Hallertauer varieties such as Hallertauer Gold and Hallertauer Tradition which had closer flavor profiles to the original.

True Hersbruck Hersbrucker is rarely available to the American home brewer.
