In the past, OHGA members have been part of many winning teams.

This year’s style is American IPA, a great beer to showcase Ontario hops!

OMAFRA’s Brewer’s Guide to Ontario-Grown Hop Varieties

In 2022, OMAFRA produced the Brewer’s Guide to Ontario-Grown Hop Varieties, intended as a resource to connect Ontario brewers with hop varieties currently grown and available from Ontario hop growers.

Information on individual hop varieties have been compiled to assist brewers in selecting the very best Ontario-grown hops for their brewing needs.

The Brewer’s Guide to Ontario-Grown Hop Varieties was written and produced by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) in collaboration with the Ontario Hop Growers’ Association and the Ontario Craft Brewers.
