Do you know that….:
A bit of theory about something very important ….
Poland is one of the world’s largest producers of hops, while the history of cultivation of this plant in our country dates back to the 10th century. Currently, the Lublin region, especially the poviats: Opole, Łęczna, Lublin and Krasnystaw, is a region in which the largest clusters of hop crops have developed in Poland. Hop plantations in this region stretch on many hectares. Plants are planted in rows and grow up on supports of up to 12 meters in height. Only female plants producing fruit heads in the shape of cones are planted. Hops are immediately associated with a golden foam drink. In brewing, hops are used only as a spice that gives the beverage its characteristic taste. To this end, small green cones produced by this plant are used. They contain a specific resin – lupulin, rich in essential oils with a bitter taste. It is the lupulin that we owe to the taste of beer we know.
