Speakers: Tom Britz, Jerry Siote

Can you still be innovative while cutting costs and increasing efficiency? In a word, Yes. In this sponsored BA Collab Hour, Glacier Hops Ranch examines several case studies:

  • Brewers challenged with squeezing more revenue out of every batch of hop-forward beers, by reducing yield losses
  • A brewer who credits one efficiency factor with surviving COVID-19
  • Eliminating hop creep and how efficiency solutions can remove hop creep altogether
  • How faster throughput can cut days off dry hopping a batch

So go ahead…put a “WOW” in your beer, while making your bean counters really happy.

About the Speakers

Tom Britz

Tom Britz, CEO

Glacier Hops Ranch, Inc

Tom Britz's career background has spanned decades in both marketing and new business development, the latter of which led to him being the visionary behind what is now Glacier Hops Ranch. His diverse background in multiple industries led him to question everything about hops and brewing, occasionally leading to unexpected answers.

In 2015, Tom was elected the first-ever National At-Large Director of the Hop Growers of America (HGA). He was subsequently appointed as National Chairman of the HGA's Small Grower Council, which oversaw the development of enterprise cost studies and best practices for small hop growers during his tenure.
