BSG Hops Processing Facility

BSG has made a significant investment in a new hop processing facility in the Yakima valley area of Washington. This new facility means that BSG has complete control of the entire supply chain from bale receipt and storage to shipping of finished goods in one location.

2014 Malting Barley Crop Report

In this report, BSG President Ian Ward takes a look at the European and North American crops, contextualizing them into a global outlook, and touching on malt quality, yields, economics, and what brewers can expect.  This year's report has a wealth of knowledge, and we highly encourage brewers and brewery staff to review the report.

To see the full report, visit our Resource page here.

Also, on October 23rd 2014, Ian gave a presentation on this subject via the Brewers Association's Power Hour program.  If you are a BA member, you can access this presentation, audio and Q & A session here.
