History in the United States

Japanese hop was originally imported to America in the late 1800s for use as a tonic in Asian medicine and as an ornamental vine. It is still sold for these purposes today. The common hop (Humulus lupulus) contains bitter acids and essential oils used as preservative and flavoring in beer, but the chemistry of Japanese hop is less desirable for that purpose.
