    buy hop rhizomes Where to Buy Hop Rhizomes

    Where to buy hop rhizomes.  I have been asked over and over so I figure I would just put together a post and answer the question of where to buy hop rhizomes online.  I got my 2009 hop rhizomes from a local homebrew store Northern Brewer (ordered online even though they are local – still 20 mile drive) – as it turns out, they get their hop rhizomes from www.freshops.com.  You might as well go straight to freshops.com and cut out the middleman.

    You can sometimes find a local homebrew shop or hop grower selling rhizomes, but generally, online buying is more convenient, better selection and you can compare shop.  Don’t forget friends and other local hop growing enthusiasts, they may be willing to part with some rhizomes.  Barter a couple of homebrews to your friends that are growing hops for some hop rhizomes!

    It’s 2010, 2011, 2012    Let’s Do It Again!

      I ordered my rhizomes from MidwestSupplies.com

    2. Thanks Lisa! Thought I had that one in my list, they are a major player in brewing supplies…

      What are the best kind of hops to grow in southeast Iowa?

    4. I am not certain which hops do well in your area. If anyone from southeast Iowa can answer that, chime in. You might want to check with your local ag university or local homebrewers.

      In answer to shottie’s question, I’ve Grown cascade, Northern brewer & Willamette here in the Cedar Rapids area with no problems. I assume that the other varieties will grow just as well…

    9. Corey says:

      I live in the south (just north of Atlanta near the mountains). The summers are brutal, which type of hop are best for hot weather? Thanks

    10. I don’t know. I will do some research and see if I can find out and I will let you know if I find something. You might want to check at any local homebrew supply store or local homebrew club – that would be your best bet – people who are actually successful at growing hops in the Atlanta area. Here is a couple links if you don’t know where to start:

      thanks for the link to the hops seller I just started my hops garden and Im looking to add a few more varieties

    12. Jens Ovrebust says:

      I live in the middle of Norway about 70km from the coast. What is the best kind of hopes to grow here. Thanks

    13. Jens,
      I am not sure what would be the best types of hops to grow in Norway. Noble hops? (European varieties). Anyway, I am a fellow Norwegian and wish you the best in you hop growing endeavor.

    14. Conrado P. Cruz says:

      Does hops ( any variety) grow in the tropics?

    15. I have no direct knowledge of hops growing in the tropics, but they are a very hardy and adaptable plant. They are susceptible to various molds. Airflow around your hop bines help to alleviate this problem as well as stripping the lower 3 feet of of the bines of leaves.

    16. Matt says:

      We have rhizomes freshly cut from our farm in Wisconsin. No need to pay retail price anymore.

    17. kents says:

      i need to buy hops for my dad’s gout problem. please tell me where to buy and i live in malaysia. thanks

    18. I am not sure where you could buy hop rhizomes for Malaysia – there are strict import/export rules for plants. You would have to find a source from within your country – home brew supply stores, plant nursery… If you are just looking for hop cones, I would think they should be available at herb retailers, possibly health stores or online from vendors that do business within Malaysia. Hope this helps.

    19. Maybee says:

      Any idea what the shortest variety of hops is? I know they are all tall, but they will be grown indoors hydoponically and even just a few feet shorter than normal is a big help..
      Thanks in advance for any suggestions

    20. Not sure on the shortest hops variety. They are developing dwarf hops in England but none are for sale yet or approved for the USA. These grow 8 – 10 ft tall with about a 30% reduction in yield compared to their taller relatives. Hopefully they will be approved soon and not patented so as to prevent sale to individuals… Google “dwarf hops”

      The taller varieties will take what you give them for height and go horizontal or grow back down a bit – FYI.

    21. T Anderson says:

      In the Seattle area Molbaks Garden center in Woodinville sells several different types of hop rhizomes including; Cascades, Saaz, Northern Brewer and Chinook.

    22. JakeK says:

      I got full hops plants online on ebay from http://greatlakeshops.com. They have over 30 kinds. The full live plants are way easier to grow than starting with the rhizomes, for a little more money.

    23. I noticed that Maybee is wondering about growing hops hydroponically. We have grown many different types of hops hydroponically. Both organic and non-organic. It’s really not too difficult if you already have a background in hydroponic hop growing. I have found that rhizomes will sprout readily in aeroponics and hydroponics. Maybe check out the website, I think my wife has put pictures of it on there.

      I also wanted to let people know that Northwest Hops is now offering, for the first time to the public, potted hops. We will be supplying cascade, centennial, nugget, and golding this year. We also have special virus free (Vf) hops if anyone is interested in having them propagated.

      Thanks for this!

      I wish they could pry loose some Simcoe, Glacier, Warrior, Palisades, and Amarillo rhizomes. If I had my wish, these would be the 5 in my garden. Simcoe in particular for a Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA clone.

    27. Steve,
      You are not alone. I probably get asked about how to get these rhizomes the most. I hope they have heavy security because when I was younger and bolder – I would have found a way to acquire them (disclaimer – I am not advocating anyone illegally “acquire” these varieties). Perhaps out of the goodness of the owners hearts, they will someday sell these varieties to the public. We can only hope.

    28. Mario Celedón says:

      We want to import varieties of hops rhizomes from USA to Chile. We want to know if they make shipments in vitro rhizomes or know if they’ve other ways to ship because they can not enter here, for phytosanitary measures, in free form. How would we pay for plane and air freight.

      Cheers from Valdivia, Región de Los Ríos.
      Chile.

    29. Mario,
      I simply blog about my experiences growing hops. I do not sell hop rhizomes or anything. You would have to work with the vendors directly, but I know there are import/export issues with agricultural products especially. If I come across any info that is helpful, I will provide that to you.

    31. sue67 says:

      Can you take clippings from existing hop plants and start a new plant?

    32. I have read that you can. It doesn’t hurt to try. Some people bury the bines under 1 to 2 inches of soil and new shoots/bines will sprout from the buried hop bines. Hope this helps.

    33. Massimo Moncini says:

      Hi,

      I would import in italy centennial rhizomes. Does somebody sell international?

      Thanks a lot

    34. I am unaware of any vendor that sells internationally – due to strick import/export agricultural laws. If I find someone that will ship internationally, I will let you know.

    35. massimo moncini says:

      ok you have my email. i was looking for american hops rhizomes

      thanks a lot

    36. I am wondering about where I can get a “Citra” hop rhyzome. I live on the California central coast. I don’t know if it is suitable for there or not. I had some of the most complex and delicious beer that I have ever tasted lately, and the brewer said he used a Citra hop.
      Thanks,
      Cat

    37. Cat,
      You can’t get Citra hop rhizomes because they are proprietary (patented) like Simcoe, Amarillo… You can only buy the finished product from the farm(s) that have been granted the right to grow this variety. Not sure, but I heard the patents are good for 20 years. If someone knows for sure, please chime in.

    40. Linda Totten says:

      I would like to grow a hop vine for the beauty.. not interested in making beer.. What variety would you reccomend for this.. Could I plant it up in a large pot to run on a fence?

      Thank you for your help.

    41. Grow Hops says:

      Linda,
      Pretty much any variety will do. I have had good luck with Cascade and Nugget for full bushy growth. Chinook are pretty prolific also. They will grow well in a 5 gallon or larger bucket or pot. They like lots of sun and you may have to train it to go where you want (just guide the bines in the directions you want them to go). Let us know how it turns out for you.

    42. Robert says:

      We have many varieties of hops, grown in small pots that are grown from virus tested stock.

    43. Grow Hops says:

      Robert, I will add your info to my “Where to Buy Hop Rhizomes” page. You do not have specifics on your website as to varieties or prices, but I will add what information that is provided on the website.

      Tony

    45. Joan zeglin says:

      Can you grow in a container….just for the beauty of plant, not for beer making? The plant is beautiful.

    46. Sorry about the delay. Yes you can grow hops in containers. If you want to keep the same plant year after year (they are perennials), you will need a large pot (5 gallon bucket size or bigger). If you want to plant new ones each year, you can get by with a smaller pot. Hope this helps.
