2023 Australian Hop Crop Report – Eclipse® is on the rise!
Hop Products Australia (HPA) has released their 2023 Hop Crop Report.
Having just completed the 2023 harvest, Hop Products Australia (HPA) has issued its 2023 Hop Crop Report. Our friends Down Under picked 847 hectares (2,093 acres) across Victoria and Tasmania, which resulted in 1,821 tons of hops. This was a 37 hectare (91.5 acres) (4.5%) net increase and a 164 ton (9.9%) net increase year-on-year across six proprietary varieties – Eclipse®, Ella™, Enigma®, Galaxy®, Topaz™ and Vic Secret™ – as well as Cascade. This year’s oil content came in equal or above the 5-year average for all proprietary hops, with a particularly strong showing from Eclipse® that should lead to an exceptional year of performance in beer.
HAAS® and HPA are two divisions of the BarthHaas Group®, which also includes BarthHaas in Europe. HPA is the world’s largest producer of Australian hops and HAAS is the exclusive distributor of HPA products in North America.
