Abstract Humulus lupulus L., commonly known as hops, is a plant widely recognized for its use in brewing beer. This paper explores the phylogenetic origins of hops, its evolution, and the global trends in hop production. The female inflorescences, or cones, of the hop plant contain biologically active compounds such as phloroglucinol derivatives, polyphenolic compounds, and essential oils, which contribute to the bitter flavour, characteristic aroma, and antimicrobial properties of beer. These compounds also exhibit antioxidant, antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic,and cognitive-enhancing properties. Notably, xanthohumol, a prenylated flavonoid found in hops, has shown anticancer effects against various types of cancer. Hops extracts have been used as natural preservatives in food products, and their application extends to cosmetics and medicine. Overall, hop extracts offer a promising source of bioactive compounds with potential applications across various industries.
