Climate change is causing increased fluctuations in the growing conditions of hops every year. In the future this may mean some varieties are less able to yield fully, while others will be more resistant and continue to grow well. Adapting your variety usage accordingly as you plan, will protect your business and help the hop farmers ensure supply remains stable.
How are changes in climate affecting hops and our industry? How can new varieties help us mitigate risks in our business?
Stephan Schinagl, Head of Purchasing at BarthHaas, explains.
High Production Costs
Increased pressure on resources, and fluctuations in costs such as energy mean the cost of growing quality hops is seeing an upward trend. As an industry we are working with farmers to help be as efficient as possible, but there are also actions that you can take as a brewer to limit your risk to increased costs.
