Hops Day in Athens

Ohio used to be a major producer of hops back in the late 19th century and early 20th century, being grown at that time throughout the state. For several reasons including both pest and disease, the hop industry gradually migrated out west to where such pressures were less.

The last several years have seen a resurgence of craft beer brewing and that has led to an increased interest on growing hops in Ohio.

The Extension Educators of the Buckeye Hills in concert with Hops experts from the OSU South Centers will have a Hops Day in Athens on May 20th.
