Our locally-produced hops are 100% climate-resilient
Hops is the green gold that gives beer its distinct bitterness and aroma, but unfortunately it is under severe risk due to erratic climate conditions and higher Summer temperatures.
Production is concentrated in a few countries (US and Germany concentrate 80% of global production). Unfortunately, production is under significant threat from climate variations, both in terms of quantity and quality of annual harvests.
Extreme droughts, erratic temperature patterns and generally higher summer temperatures are affecting aroma hops and their ⍺-acid contents (by up to 60%). Year-on-year yield variations can move +/- 30%
