I'm looking specifically for 1-2 regular HALLERTAU or Mittelfruh hop rhizomes to plant in my garden this Spring 2023. I am German and located near Pontiac Michigan area if that matters. Am looking for a friendship gift from a kind fellow homebrewer and I will provide you the prepaid shipping label. Danke.

I recently read this hop is trademarked (or whatever the appropriate term is). If that’s the case, it will be very difficult to get your hands on it.

I must have misinterpreted your statement - "I recently read this hop is trademarked". There are a few that came out of the breeding program in Hull that include the Hallertau name like 'Blanc', 'Tradition' that are protected/trademarked, but for all I've ever learned over the years is that 'landrace' hops can't be protected like that. The whole 'Golding', 'Kent Golding', 'East Kent Golding' situation is a little different. Any way, it can be found for sale at various suppliers: Hallertau MF - Field Grade, https://www.thymegarden.com/product...tified-organic-alpha-3-5-pre-order-for-spring, Hallertau | Sandy Ridge Farms

Many years before the hop craze we've been in for the last 15 or so years, many hops in use were basically just varieties or 'types' that people of certain regions found growing locally and began cultivating them to be used in the beers they brewed. Hops found in the Hallertau region were selected for the pleasant 'hoppiness' they provided to the beers they were used in, and certain 'types' ripened at different times. They weren't really given names but called by the region they were growing like 'Hallertau', 'Hersbruck', 'Spalt' and so on. Haha, instead of me trying to blather on about this, I found what I wanted to say in an article with info provided by Shellhammer and Val Peacock: The Oxford Companion to Beer Definition of Hallertauer Mittelfrueh (hop).
