Idaho Hop Growers Commission

The Idaho Hop Growers’ Commission (IHGC) was formed in 1955 to market and protect Idaho hops, and to conduct relevant research for their continued growth and health. Hops are grown in Northern Idaho, southern Idaho and the Treasure Valley. Harvest begins in August and continues through the first of October.

The Northwest’s favorable climate, fertile soils, plentiful irrigation water, and multi-generational family farms have resulted in excellent quality and yields. Modern post-harvest storage and processing facilities in the region ensure the highest crop quality is maintained, while supplying the brewing industry with virtually any product it desires.
