This article is about the ingredient used in making ales. For the drunk involved in the Biohazard quest, see Hops (NPC).

Hops can be used to make different types of beers and ales with the Cooking skill. Hop seeds are planted in a hops patch by using 4 hop seeds (only 3 Jute seeds) on the patch with a seed dibber in the player's inventory or tool belt. Hops need to be watered during its growing cycle. Harvesting yields between 3 and 35 hops and is done with a spade in the player's inventory or tool belt. After a hops patch has been harvested, it will become cleared which will require the patch to be re-planted. Hops on average give less experience in planting and harvesting than allotments; however, they are not nearly as susceptible to disease as allotments. Hops patch do not a have a compost bin nearby but do have a Tool Leprechaun.
