UK Pub Closures & Hop Growing at Risk

The traditional British pint is under threat as pub closures have put the centuries-old hop growing industry in jeopardy.

Figures reveal that half of the hops grown in Britain this year won’t be used – leaving a surplus of 800 tons, or enough to brew 700 million pints of cask ale.

Unless the Government buys up the surplus, valued at £8m, many of the 59 family owned farms responsible for the country’s entire hop crop will be forced to quit the business – and once they have exited they will not come back, the British Hop Association warns.
