Cascade is a variety of hop developed in the USDA breeding program at Oregon State University by Jack Horner and released as an American aroma variety in 1971. It originated from an open seed collection in 1956, including English Fuggle, Russian Serebrianker, and an unspecified male hop variety. In addition to appealing flavor qualities, researchers were looking for resistance to downy mildew, a threat to hop yards. Cascade was named after the Cascade mountain range that runs through the states of Washington, Oregon and the Canadian province of British Columbia. The hop variety was first used commercially in 1976 by the New Albion Brewing Company, which established it as a signature hop for American pale ale.
