Hop Farms in Colorado

List of Colorado Hop FarmsWhat would a beer be without hops? Hops are one of the most important ingredients in a beer. If you've ever taken hops in your hand and breathed deep, the aroma would instantly remind you of a beer. It's what gives beer that added extra in both aroma and bitterness.

So where do hops come from? The vast majority of them in the USA come from the Pacific Northwest. But now, due to an ever growing demand from the thousands of craft breweries out there, many states are having to grow their own hops to help keep up with demand. And Colorado is no exception. The acreage may be a lot lower than some states, but the number of hop farms in the state are steadily increasing as a big cash crop.

Here is a list of the known Hop Farms in Colorado. Hop farming is a very volatile business as many growers come and go regularly. This list is maintained annually and may contain some hop farms no longer in business. If you have any other farms that aren't listed here please Contact us and let us know. Thanks! Please note that this list is constantly changing and some hop growers may no longer be producing.
