Championing European hops?

28/05/2024 16:30 Room 2.3/2.4 Brewers Forum

Beer Brewing

In a time of economic crisis, where commodities become increasingly expensive and citizens and consumers try to support the local economy, breweries might consider going for the local hop varieties and suppliers.
