Pliny appears to have been the first to mention hops; Dioscorides was not yet aware of the plant. It is first referred to by name in medieval manuscripts, which also make mention of homularien, “hops gardens”, a reference not to cultivated fields but to large wild occurrences of the plant. Hops also appears in the work of all of the fathers of botany and was botanically described by Linnaeus.

Today, hops is the most commonly used beer additive. This use was invented toward the end of the middle-ages by Christian monk, who had a great interest in the anaphrodisiac qualities of hops flowers. However, the use of hops as a beer additive did not become commonplace until the 16th century, when the Bavarian Purity Law (the first German drug law) was promulgated.
