WHO IS NYHG
NY Hop Guild Founder, Chuck Rhoades, is the owner of Willet Hop & Grain in Willet, NY as well as one of the owners of Beer Tree Brew Co. in Port Crane, NY. NYHG Founder Chris Holden is the owner of Crooked Creek Hops in Addison, NY. NYHG was inspired after experiencing business not only as a farmer, but as the end user of the hops. The mission of the NYHG is to provide quality hops from NYS as well as hand selected hops from around the country and world to small breweries.
As a small brewery, to get any hops that are not local there is a high fee on shipping and a lack of quality control in the shipping process. The NYHG is able to travel to distant farms, hand select the finest hops to meet our stringent quality standards and bring them to you at bulk quantity pricing. Large order quantities are ordered out of cold storage there and are expedited to cold storage here to make sure quality is maintained.
