We’ve been hop suppliers for over 150 years, so we’ve got a lot of hop history. Charles Faram Hop Merchants and Factors has one of the largest range of hop varieties available from stock in both vacuum packed leaf hops and Type 90 (T90) pellets.
Varieties come from the UK, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Poland, Slovenia, New Zealand and the USA. Faram’s provides an artist’s palette of flavours to create every type and style of beer from the traditional varieties to exciting new developmental varieties from Faram’s own breeding and development programme. Our own varieties include Archer®, Godiva™, Harlequin™, Jester®, Minstrel®, Mystic® and Olicana®.
We also supply Paul’s Malt, Les Maltiers, Belgomalt, Minch Malt, Murphy’s brewing aids, Fermentis yeast, UB Plastics shives and keystones and natural hop products such as HopAlpha for bitterness and HopBurst for aroma.
At Charles Faram we can help you with brewing technical advice and variety recommendations
Our Toronto office was established in 2014. We are a grower-owned hop merchant, originally based in Worcester, now situated in the tiny hamlet of Newland at the foot of the picturesque Malvern Hills. We also have offices and cold stores in Yakima and Portland in the USA.
We’ve come a long way since the standard three hop varieties on offer and the base in the old hop market in Worcester city centre. Hop picking has become more mechanised and brewery numbers all over the world have increased dramatically. Tastes and trends have changed, and so too have the hops. Check out our hop development page to find out the commitment that the industry is making to ensure that we can help brewers to create great beer.
