The Most Popular Beer Hops of July 2016

Each month we look at the most popular beer hops being searched for by brewers around the world. Our latest infographic outlines the new top 8 trending hop varieties for the month of July, 2016.

The top 3, Cascade (US), Citra® and Chinook remain largely unchanged from June. These are clearly monsters of the industry and remain unchallenged at the top of the chart. There are some surprising new entries in July though with Simcoe®, Cluster and Centennial making entries for the first time.

Are brewers looking backward to some old staples? Centennial and Cluster were both at one time pillars of US commercial hop production but recently have both seen a resurgence among craft breweries. Simcoe® isn’t exactly old but it’s hefty splash into the 8 this month adds to it’s ever apparent increase popularity. Brewers seem to be buoyed by Simcoe® as an interesting and proven alternative to Cascade (US).

Honourable mentions to Galaxy and Willamette — which both dropped out of the top 8 this month — now residing at number 9 and 10 respectively.
