Hop Production in Arkansas
Over the past three years, our team has been working to establish recommendations for growers in Arkansas to produce locally grown hops, for use in local beer brewing. As a part of this project, we've hosted two webinars covering the recommendations, varieties and post-harvest practices we recommend to grow hops in Arkansas.
Check out videos below from specialists, local brewers, and hop growers from across
the state as well as additional information on hops production!
