Do I need a hop contract?
Get in touch to see what we have available to spot buy but it’s worth remembering Hops are the lifeblood of a modern craft brewery so a contract is definitely recommended for consistent supply. Global demand for many hops is increasing and that is causing some issues with consistency of supply and in effect driving the price upwards.
Contracting stabilises pricing and helps ensure you get at least some of the hops you need if not all and you get a consistently impressive hop product from one origin. It’s risky relying on the spot market for supply as some key hop varieties now just aren’t available on the spot market at any price, look at the hop variety Galaxy for example.
Regular communication and conversations about your brewery hop needs and a two way relationship means we can both make the contracts work for each other. A hop contract gives the farmers confidence to plant more hops ensuring continued supply.
*A hop contract is a legally binding agree between the brewer who purchases and the hop merchant, to supply a set amount of hops at a certain price and the agreement usually lasts for 12 months.
One of the key points we think adds value when looking at a hop contract with Geterbrewed is that we show flexibility if you need to make amendments , we can negotiate and explore options to help one another, we can’t promise to just take everything back or give you all the extra hops you require but we will explore all possible options and try our best to be flexible.
