Welcome to the portal for the third annual South Atlantic Hops Conference – a joint effort/collaboration between North Carolina State University, Virginia Tech, Virginia Cooperative Extension, Virginia State University, and the Old Dominion Hops Cooperative. 

We have a great group of  volunteers dedicated to making the South Atlantic Hops Cooperative happen – Extension educators, hop growers, researchers, brewers, and more.  A huge thank youto Dr. Jeanine Davis for heading up the two previous conferences.  We’re very excited to host this wonderful event here in Blacksburg and will play to our strengths in this [slightly remote but lovely]  university setting. This year’s format is a little different: no bus tours, or individual day registrations. One flat registration fee covers two full days of education and networking opportunities for our region’s hop growers and brewers.

We are going to cover a lot of ground in those two days. Includes two lunches, three food/beverage breaks, access to vendors, interactive learning stations, and our new networking reception, all held in a first-class facility.  Definitely worth the effort to get here! Brewers: don’t miss this chance to “think outside the pellet” – expand your knowledge of locally-grown hops and network with our regional growers.  All this for $220. What a deal!!!
