The United States is a big producer of hops. The versatility and variety of American hops are recognized internationally. Brazil has seen a great growth of craft breweries in the last ten years and American hops is a high-quality option to meet the demand of this promising market.

This was an initiative of the Hop Growers of America (HGA) non-profit trade organization, which among its activities, has an international program to support and educate professionals in the sector.
