WILLIAMSBURG, Mich. (AP) — Northern Michigan’s budding hops industry appears to be doing better after a rocky start at the beginning of the year.
During the early months of the global pandemic, Michigan hops sales dipped 30% to 50% as operations across the craft beer industry shut down and brewers had to turn to product in storage.
According to the Traverse City Record-Eagle, Michigan Local Hops says sales picked up in July and August.
The sales director at Michigan Local Hops says the farm continues working on ways to improve.
