Hop Grower Codes

Since the 2007-2008 hop shortage, the Brewers Association has encouraged brewers to develop stronger relationships with their hop merchants and hop growers. A business relationship can be significantly strengthened with a handshake and personal contact. In this era of rapidly shifting hop acreage, brewers must make their aroma hop needs known to growers to ensure supply of their preferred varieties.

Brewers need to become familiar with the hop grower number on their hop shipments. This concept allows both brewers and growers to benefit from the terroir value of the hops used in order to continue making the world’s greatest beers.

How to Read Hop Grower Codes

Most hop lot codes include the hop grower number, crop year, and a hop variety identifier. The appropriate state hop grower commission, your hop dealer, or your hop grower can explain how to read the hop lot codes on a particular hop bale or box.

Many dealers now post detailed lot information online as searchable or scannable data, that may include information about individual fields, spray records, certificates of analysis, oil content, etc.

Hop Growers of America provides information about industry standards.

Hop Grower Numbers

Brewers Association (BA) relies on Hop Growers of America (HGA) to provide a current list of hop grower codes. HGA issues grower codes to ensure traceability throughout the supply chain. Obtaining a grower number is a free service and does not require HGA membership. BA encourages hop growers to obtain a grower number through HGA and updates the following list regularly. BA will only list hop growers with hop grower numbers.

Please contact Chris Swersey if you have questions regarding grower numbers, or to correct any information included on the list.
