Hop Products Australia has completed its 2021 hop harvest. HPA picked 675 hectares totalling1,526 metric tonnes of hops.

They saw an increase in acreage harvested, but a decrease in yield and saw a significant increase in tonnage in Galaxy, Vic Secret and newcomer Eclipse, but a decline in Ella that will see issues around contracted volumes. This year was also notable for the end of classic alpha hop, Super Pride.

We discuss all of this and more in this BreweryPro podcast.
