The Craft Brewers Conference and trade show, BrewExpo America®, is taking place April 8-11, 2019 in Denver Colorado. This is a key activity for Hop Growers of America’s TEC (Trade Education Communication) program, and the featured hop lineup for 2019 will include two proprietary varieties, along with public varieties and experimental selections. We are seeking nominations for the proprietary varieties by January 10, 2019.
The HGA Board of Directors is seeking U.S. hop growers who are willing to volunteer and work in the booth alongside HGA staff. If you are interested in serving as a delegate, please email Jessica Lucas (email@example.com) to submit your name and the information so we have some information to convey to the Board prior to voting. Deadline for applying is January 10, 2019.
Interested proprietors should email Jessica Lucas (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the varieties they would like to submit for consideration for the HGA booth. Each variety will need to be supplied in the following levels: 100 pounds of pellets will be needed for samples to distribute, and four brewer cuts are required for sensory analysis in the booth. CBC 2019 will be held in Denver, CO on April 8 – 11. Further details and logistics will be discussed with the owners of the two selected hops. Final selection will be determined by the HGA Board of Directors.
