Following the release of this year’s Barth Report, Owen Johnston spoke to Matt and Pete from Brews News about all things hops related.

he Barth Report has been published annually with few exceptions since 1877.

The world has changed significantly since then, but the timely and objective reporting on events in the hop market following each crop year, remains constant.

Following the release of this year’s report, Owen Johnston spoke to Matt Kirkegaard and Pete Mitcham from Brews News, discussing international hop trends and what to expect in the not-so-distant future.

The Barth Report is produced by the Barth-Haas Group of which Hop Products Australia is a proud member.

A snapshot of Australia? As a result of increase in acreage, the average hop-growing area per farm rose from 51 ha in crop year 2014 to 61 ha in crop year 2015.
