About the Ohio Hop Growers Guild

The Ohio Hop Growers Guild (OHGG) is a growing group of over 70 current or future independent hop growers across the state of Ohio. We began considering formation in the summer of 2014, after a number of us had met several times at Ohio State University sponsored hop growing events, and agreed that we could benefit from a more formal organizational structure. Thus, the idea of a growers' guild was born in order to expand our networking, both internally and externally; to agree on common quality standards and assurance; to share information, training, and education; to jointly advocate for and market our product; and improve access to resources and cut costs; with one crosscutting theme: quality.

Our members currently have over 50,000 hop plants under cultivation, with over 30 varieties. In the past year, over 70 craft brewers brewed with Ohio grown hops.
