Almost half of the Tradition comes from Hallertau Mittlefruh. Tradition also comes from Hallertau Gold and Saaz and is sometimes called Hallertau Tradition. It was introduced in the early 1990s and owes its success partly to the fact that it has more alpha acids than its parents, less cohumulone and more myrcene oils.
