Interested in buying organic hops – or, given the general shortage, any hops?
Glen Fuller emailed to let me know he’s putting in five acres of USDA Certified Organic hops in his Paonia, Colorado farm. He invites Beer Activist readers to email or call him directly if you’re interested in putting in a custom order in advance.
I also just heard that folks at the Brewers Association are meeting soon with hop growers and will be providing them with an update on the USDA rules regarding organic hops. I put in a call to the USDA today to check on the status of the ruling that came down last summer. I’ll post an update here when I get news back from them.
Meanwhile, you can always order small quantities of over a dozen varieties of organic hops from the Seven Bridges Cooperative in Santa Cruz – not to mention all your other organic brewing needs.
