Without hops, there would be no beer. And that’s a world we don’t want to live in.
Last year, the Pacific Northwest supplied the vast majority of the country’s hops. Between Washington, Idaho and Oregon, there are close to 71,000 acres of hops across the three-state footprint alone. It’s no coincidence that we’re also located in those areas, because we know hops from the ground up.
