HPA’s farms have been growing hops in Australia for more than one hundred and fifty years, and are made up of a great bunch of people who are as passionate about beer as they are about hops (which is saying something).
We’re a privately owned and independently managed Australian company, part of the Barth-Haas Group of companies; the largest hop trader in the world, founded in 1794.
Our farms – Bushy Park Estates and Rostrevor Hop Gardens – are amongst the oldest continuously operating hop farms in the world. They’ve both been dedicated to growing hops since the late 1800s.
Today, from these farms and selected growers, we handle around 90% of the hops grown in Australia, about 1% of the world’s production.
Through our dedicated hop breeding program and incessant drive to bring brewers the best hops; we have introduced a number of proprietary flavour hops, in addition to our aroma and bittering varieties.
We’re proud to play a part in creating memorable flavours and distinctive aromas of hundreds of different beers enjoyed in pubs, restaurants, bars and backyards around the world.
