We’re proud to introduce the newest proprietary variety from our hop breeding program. Eclipse® is a big-hitting, fruit-forward flavour hop bursting with sweet mandarin, zesty citrus peel and fresh pine needles.
We now supply New Zealand varieties grown by Clayton Hops
As the specialist hop supplier in Australia, we’re always looking to grow our portfolio to offer our customers even greater choice and diversity. For years we’ve been aware of the opportunity on our doorstep, but our commitment to provide quality hops backed by supply surety meant we needed to wait for the right conditions to come along.
2020 Crop Report: HPA record a 5.5% increase in production volume
After more than a month of cutting, picking, drying, pressing, pelletising and packaging, the numbers are in. HPA harvested 631 hectares across our three farms in 2020, which resulted in a production volume of 1,554 metric tonnes.
Our Hop Breeding Program began way back in the 1950s when we were all about growing bittering hops. Our primary focus was improving our alpha acid yield until the beginning of the craft beer movement rolled around.
