Hop Products Australia

Hop Products Australia (HPA) is Australia’s largest hop grower. Their farms have been growing hops for more than 150 years. Rostrevor Hop Gardens and Buffalo River Valley in North-Eastern Victoria together with Bushy Park Estates in Southern Tasmania cover almost 850 hectares capable of producing more than 2,400 tonnes of hops. Collectively they grow 90% of Australia’s hops, which is roughly 2% of hops grown around the world.

Their hop breeding program began way back in the 1950s when the primary focus was improving alpha acid yield. Then the dawn of the craft beer movement rolled around, and HPA began to breed flavour hops for the emerging market. Since then, they have created a number of hugely successful proprietary hops including Galaxy®, Vic Secret, Eclipse®, Ella, Enigma® and Topaz.

As sole custodians of their Aussie hops, and regional representatives of the global BarthHaas group, they supply a range of consistently high-quality Aussie, international, and innovative hop products from their local coolstore in Auckland.”
