The good ol’ US of A grows 30 percent of the world’s hops. Many grape growing regions claim exceptional terroir, and hops tend to be blessed by where they’re grown too. Typically German and Czech hops are known for being floral, while in the UK, hops are described as earthy. Here in the U.S., craft beers benefit from the country’s piney, citrusy and resinous hops like Cascade, Centennial and Amarillo®. In the U.S., 77 percent of hops are grown in Washington, while the majority of the rest are grown in Oregon and Idaho.
