British Hops

“Hops are our world”, so says one of the international hop merchants.

However as Growers we beg to differ. We live and breathe hops. They are historical, romantic, extremely difficult and time-consuming to grow. Hops are our life, our outlook, the view from our windows and our livelihood.

There is so much to say about the humble hop. Too much for one page so depending on what you would like to know, please click on the links below:

The British Hop Association has played a brilliant role in promoting British hops and developing new varieties to meet the demands of the modern brewing industry. British hops have a proud history and a sound future thanks to the dedicated work of hop farmers.
