This week on Beer is a Conversation, James Atkinson and Pete Mitcham are joined by Steve Carpenter, Chief Operations Officer at Yakima Chief-Hopunion, a global hop supplier headquartered in Yakima USA.
His family has been growing hops in the Yakima Valley since 1869, so it’s fair to say the business of hop growing is in his blood.
He talks about current trends in the hop sector and the challenges facing growers in a rapidly evolving craft beer market.
Enjoy the conversation.
