Researchers refine the science of brewing

From a number of the top beers brought forth for judging at the 2012 North Carolina’s Brewer’s Cup, three brews originated at N.C. State. These beers were created by researchers in the brewery cradled within the lower level of Schaub Hall.

Demand, interest in hops soaring in North Carolina | Management content from Southeast Farm Press

Demand, interest in hops soaring in North Carolina | Management content from Southeast Farm Press | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it
Demand and interest in hops is soaring in North Carolina, partly due to the re-location of three major beer breweries in the state.
CALS Research, NCSU's insight:

"Three large beer brewers are building their east coast breweries in North Carolina, combined with 60 or so craft beer brewers and a thriving number of amateur brewers and there has grown a significant demand for one of beer’s primary ingredients — hops.

 

"The crop is not native to the Tar Heel state, but has been grown in the past and can be grown now, but just how to do that has proven to be a perplexing challenge for North Carolina State University Horticulturist Jeanine Davis.

Davis and her research team at North Carolina State’s Mountain Horticultural Research Station in Mills River, N.C., and on the main campus in Raleigh, have taken up the challenge and are making progress in getting hops planted in the western and piedmont sections of North Carolina."

 

Davis and her team hope to benefit small and large breweries in the state.
