Humulus Lupulus is a member of the Cannabaceae family of flowering plants. Hops are climbing, perennial, herbaceous type plants with generally rough stems. The plant usually has twin vines and grows from 3 to 10 meters in length. Although frequently referred to in American literature as the hops “vine”, it is technically a bine; unlike vines, which use tendrils, suckers, and other appendages for attaching themselves, bines have stout stems with stiff hairs to aid in climbing. It sends up new shoots in early spring and dies back to the cold-hardy rhizome in autumn. Hop shoots grow very rapidly, and at the peak of growth can grow 20 to 50 centimeters (8 to 20 in) per week.

Many different varieties of hops are grown by farmers around the world, with different types used for particular styles of beer. When cultivated the hop plant is a vigorous, climbing, herbaceous perennial. It is usually trained to grow up strings in a field called a hopfield, hop garden, or hop yard when grown commercially. In the wild, it can be found growing up and over apple trees, along hedgerows entangled with wild brambles.
