Hop suppliers and much, much more

Hop suppliers and much, much more

We’ve been hop suppliers for over 150 years, so we’ve got a lot of hop history.  Charles Faram Hop Merchants and Factors has one of the largest range of hop varieties available from stock in both vacuum packed leaf hops and Type 90 (T90) pellets. 

Varieties come from the UK, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Poland, Slovenia, New Zealand and the USA. Faram’s provides an artist’s palette of flavours to create every type and style of beer from the traditional varieties to exciting new developmental varieties from Faram’s own breeding and development programme. Our own varieties include Archer®, Godiva™, Harlequin™, Jester®, Minstrel®, Mystic® and Olicana®.

Not just hops

We also supply Crisp, Castle and Weyermann® malt, Murphy’s and Vicker’s brewing aids, Fermentis yeast, Rankin shives and keystones, Dolium one-trip kegs, sensory training kits and natural hop products such as HopAlpha for bitterness and HopBurst for aroma.

Our locations

We are a grower-owned hop merchant, originally based in Worcester, we are now situated in the tiny hamlet of Newland at the foot of the picturesque Malvern Hills. This means that we are ideally placed for collection or distribution through the UK. We also have offices and cold stores in Yakima, Portland and Toronto

Hop history

We’ve come a long way since the standard three hop varieties on offer and the base in the old hop market in Worcester city centre.  Hop picking has become more mechanised and brewery numbers all over the world have increased dramatically.  Tastes and trends have changed, and so too have the hops.  Check out our hop development page to find out the commitment that the industry is making to ensure that we can help brewers to create great beer.
