Open pollination of a Fuggle seedling, derived from Fuggle and Serebrianka. Since its release in 1972, Cascade has grown to become one of the most recognizable varieties by both brewers and beer consumers alike. Despite the emergence of several popular proprietary varieties in recent years, Cascade has remained the number one most utilized variety
in craft brewing since 2007, when the Brewers Association released its first hop usage report. What many beer enthusiasts may not know is that Cascade ultimately owes its success to the rapid growth of the craft beer industry and the coinciding growth in the popularity of hoppy, aromatic beer styles.
