FST Farm 2 Fork - Oregon Hop Terroir: Exploring the Regional Hops within the Willamette Valley

Terroir, or regional identity, is the concept where unique flavor and quality characteristics of different crops or products relate to their place of origin.

Consumers may be familiar with terroir because the winegrape and winemaking industries have studied and successfully marketed wines using this concept.

In an ongoing collaboration among Oregon State University, Coleman Agriculture (a sixth generation hop grower) and Red Hills Soils (a team of researchers and hop growers) carried out a first-of-its-kind study of regional variation of hops grown in the Willamette Valley.

This presentation will...

  • Highlight how hops are grown and their importance in brewing
  • Explore our findings that suggest regional variation exists for hops grown in the Willamette Valley
  • Discuss what this may mean for the consumer of beers made with Oregon hops

Friday, October 16 at 12:00pm to 12:30pm
