The Beauty of Hops

An Australian beer store, the Beer Cartel, created a pretty cool infographic entitled the Beauty of Hops for an informative blog post, the beautiful marriage of hops and craft beer, which provides a nice overview of hops. Assuming it’s correct, I don’t think I realized Ethiopia is the third-largest hop producing nation. That was a surprise.

    I’m surprised too Ethiopia is on this list. Googled it, according to Wiki and FAOSTAT, it is indeed the 3rd hop producing country.

  2. says

    According to the 2015 Barth Hop Report, ALL of Africa accounted for only 822 metric tons of hop production in 2014 (with 413 hectares under cultivation across the entire continent). Figures listed for other nations don’t match up to that report’s totals.
