US Hop Acreage Increases Again

News: May 2017

The number of acres devoted to the cultivation of hops in the US has increased yet again.

Figures released by Hop Growers of America show that almost 53,000 acres were cultivated in 2017, an increase of more than 75% in just four years, as interest in hop-forward beers such as IPAs continues to be strong.

The association also claims that the acreage added in the US in the last five years is larger than the total acreage of every other country, except for Germany.
