Name new hop variety 'Wallex'

Do you love your cask ale? Are you a fan of TV-wit and pint-pundit Danny Wallace? Then sign Nicholson’s pubs’ petition to get an experimental hop, used in the IPA which Danny helped formulate, named ‘Wallex’ in his honour.

To create Tom Ditto IPA, Danny worked in a unique collaboration with London’s Truman’s Brewery. Remarkably, one of the hops used is an experimental strain with no name. But you can help us change that.

When brewers order this variety in future we want them to be asking hop farmers for ‘Wallex’, the Danny Wallace hop. So sign our petition today. If it’s successful, you could be one of 10 lucky signers, drawn at random, to join Danny at a London Nicholson’s for a victory celebration.


  • Simon Botley We want Wallex!

  • Steve Owen And people say the nation is apathetic! A vote for this is a vote for common-sense thinking, putting hops in the pockets of the hard-working Bingo player.
