It’s no small feat for hop growers to put thousands of acres of new hops in the ground in a given year, but demand from brewers today has led to huge growth in acres and a dramatic shift in which hops are being grown. Here we depict the most-grown hops (by acres harvested) in the Pacific Northwest from 2014 to 2020, showing the top 10 each year. The height of each band represents the number of acres grown that year; one inch is about 6,500 acres.
