It’s a new year, a new decade, and a great time to reevaluate some of your brewery SOPs. As craft brewers, many of us have adopted a brewing-inspired version of the ”day you stop learning...” mantra: “The day we stop improving, is the day we turn in our boots.” Inspired by that attitude, maybe it’s time to reconsider your dry hopping procedures, or at least take a hard, educated look at them.
BSG Hops is an independent hop processor and merchant based out of Wapato in the Yakima Valley. Set in the heart of the US hop region, we source hops directly from our grower partners around the world. Freshly dried whole cones are received by our expert staff and immediately evaluated against our strict quality standards. Hop quality does not end in the field however, and this is where BSG’s hop processing expertise shows through.

In the world of hop growers and merchants, it’s said that “All roads lead to Harvest,” harvest. Inevitably, harvest winds down for the year and you’re left standing in the empty fields among the barren trellises. This is the time when growers reflect on the year’s growing season and harvest while looking forward to the 2020 crop and it’s challenges and hopeful rewards.

Great Pedding Farm started out as 195 acres before expanding over the decades, producing fruit, sheep, cattle, potatoes, and - of course - hops. AC Hulme & Sons was formed in 1969 and continues today under the leadership of Humphrey Hulme and his nephew Tom.
Ben and Dave Smith are part of the fifth generation of a hop-growing family rooted in the sandy loam along the Willamette River. They grew up moving pipe, driving tractor, and generally helping out during harvest on their father’s farm. Ben and Dave knew from an early age that they wanted to continue this legacy.
