Some people in the hop trade think that Canterbury Golding is different from Kent Golding, but chemically and in brewing, they are identical. This hop has grown well in Oregon since its introduction in 1994, producing yields substantially higher than those found in England. Microbrewers and Craft brewers in the US are the major customers of Kent Golding.
