For the November/December 2020 The New Brewer, we present our annual Raw Materials issue. In this issue, we take a closer look at the barley and hops harvests from the U.S. and around the world. U.S. hop acreage was once again at record levels, while U.S. barley production decreased slightly. Author Gabe Toth examines how barley growers and maltsters are adjusting to fluctuating demand due to COVID-19. Hops guru Stan Hieronymus provides details for several new varieties available for craft brewers, and Dick Cantwell and Chris Swersey provide results from the 13th annual Brewers Association Hop Usage Survey.
