The Australian hop selection Super Pride is a triploid high alpha acid variety, bred by the Hop Products Australia Rostrevor breeding programme. Bred from the famous Pride of Ringwood – Australia’s dominant hop variety since the 1960’s – Super Pride features similar mild aromas and low Cohumulone levels. Super Pride has higher alpha acid than its mother Pride of Ringwood.
Bred in 1987, commercial production began in 1998 and since 2002 Super Pride has been the major hop variety grown by Hop Products Australia. With its excellent bittering qualities Super Pride is now accepted by major breweries as an excellent bittering variety.
Super Pride was bred in 1987 by Hop Products Australia at their Rostrevor Breeding Garden
Victoria. This cultivar was bred by crossing a female tretraploid Pride of Ringwood with
a male YK –81-18. Super Pride was selected for commercial production due to its high alpha
acid content and relatively low cohumulone levels.
Note: Super Pride is 2/3 Pride of Ringwood and 1/3 male YK-81-18.YK-81-18 is a male derived from an open
cross of Yeoman carried out at Wye College, UK in 1981.
