Craft beer brewing has enjoyed a  resurgence in the United States over the last 30 years. As small breweries spring up, so does the opportunity for nearby farmers to supply them with locally grown hops. From weed management, to pest management, to exploring marketing strategies, NCR-SARE has supported work by farmers, researchers, and brewers that has promoted sustainable hop production practices.
