HGA sincerely appreciates the efforts the Idaho Convention Committee has invested during the past year, and are saddened the pandemic has required the cancellation of the exciting event they were planning to host in Santa Rosa.  The Idaho team asked HGA to organize the 2021 virtual event, but will be back to host the 2023 American Hop Convention in Santa Rosa, picking up where they left off this year!
