Founded in 2001, Foothill Hops has been providing hops to home brewers and small breweries for many years. When home brewers came looking for grains and equipment, we decided to open a home brewing shop. Our gift shop has evolved into a specialty foods store with a focus on local products. We are especially proud of our expanding line of specialty food products. We are also working on a new dream of having our own mini-nano brewery. Watch that evolve over the next several months.
In 2010, Empire Brewing Company began using our Cascade hops in the Empire State Pale Ale, the first all NYS Hops beer on tap year round. When Good Nature Brewing Company started using our hops in their signature beers in 2012, we were happy to see that our longstanding goal of NYS labeled beers and farm breweries was finally underway.
