BrewON is a new certification for Ontario-hopped beerTweet
Ontario – A new initiative launched this month by the Ontario Hop Growers’ Association (OHGA) called BrewON is aimed towards certifying and promoting beer brewed with Ontario-grown hops.
“Hops, once a thriving crop in Ontario, are making a comeback thanks to to the expertise and hands-on labour of our hard-working growers. Ontario hop growers provide an economic boost to Ontario as they continue to invest in expanding their hopyards and processing equipment in order to meet rising demand for quality Ontario hops,” explains OHGA.
They add, “when you enjoy a BrewON craft beer, you can feel confident about the source and the freshness of the hops in your beer. Hops that haven’t travelled thousands of kilometres to get here. Hops grown by real people with real families.”
The two-tiered certification recognizes beer either brewed with 50%–99% hops or 100% hops from OHGA member growers.
