MYTHS AND LEGENDS
Sadly, There are no great myths, gods or goddesses dedicated to hops. That we know of.
The importance of hops to the early man was quite limited and its common use in beer didn’t occur until well after society has stopped creating myths and legends to explain the world around them. There are, however, lots of misconceptions about hops, such as Jewish exiles drinking hopped ale as a defence against leprosy.
The first documented hop cultivation was in 736, in the Hallertau region of present-day Germany, although the first mention of the use of hops in brewing in that country was 1079.
