In the Industry: German Hops with Carlos Ruiz
Overseeing numerous international accounts, from the various hop farms of Germany to your local brewery, is no small feat. Luckily, Carlos Ruiz of HVG (Hop Processing Cooperative) is up to the task. Carlos is the International Sales Manager over at HVG, a partner and friend to hop growers in Germany. Carlos took the time to chat with BSG about what he does over at HVG, his favorite parts of his job, what HVG does, and even a couple exciting upcoming German hops.
