Abstract
Barley was introduced to North America by European colonists beginning in the early 17th century. However, the development of both barley cultivation and brewing in North America was quite different from what occurred in Europe, and some misconceptions persist even today. A unique difference is that 6-rowed barley remained the primary form in the U.S. until the latter half of the 20th century.
Keywords: colonial years, history, malting barley, six-rowed, two-rowed
 
Síntesis
La cebada fue introducida en Norte América por colonistas europeas a comienzos del siglo XVII. Sin embargo, el desarrollo del cultivo de cebada y del proceso cervecero en Norte América fue bastante diferente que en Europa, y algunos conceptos erróneos persisten hasta este día. Una diferencia principal fue el uso primordialmente de cebada de seis hileras en los EE. UU. hasta fines del siglo XX.
Palabras claves: años coloniales, cebada cervecera, dos hileras, historia cervecera, seis hileras
