    Yup, all of these 'fire sales' would lead me to believe that there is indeed excess product out there. Sometimes the economic principle of supply and demand actually 'works'.

    Cheers!

    I think especially when you have an expiring good. Good for the consumer!

    Old farmer saying, " if you grow it, they may not buy it".

    There have been several article about the high amount of stock at brokers and breweries. Some of that is for the not so trendy hops, but you can find big quantities just about any hops for sale. The exception are the NZ hops, but you can find them sometimes if you are willing to pay a high price.

    There were another 2000 acres strung in the PNW in 2018.

    Yeah, I recently bought six pounds from Hop Direct from between $5.00 and $8.00 / lb, as they recently had a number of varieties on sale. Many varieties are now sold out, but some are still for sale at quite good prices. Nosing around this morning they I see they still have Centennial, Cluster, Crystal, Cascade, Tahoma, and Comet pellets at pretty good (< $10 /lb) prices.

    Cheers!

    Picked up some Warrior and Willamette as well. Love using those hops in my imperial stouts so always need a healthy dose on hand.

    I heard fire and dry weather played havoc with the noble hops last year.

    Might have to pick up some comet as I am growing it and want to use it now...

    Life pro tip: throw in dry yeast cause it’s cheap there and ships for free...

    I think it’s time to invest in a vacuum sealer!

    Also a good podcast from the Brulosphy dudes on hop stability and storage. Worth a listen.
