Our hops are grown on a beautiful, south facing slope on the 49th parallel on Vancouver Island – the sweet spot for hop growing.
Hops Are Our Passion
Vancouver Island Hop Co. began in 2015 with one acre of hops south of Nanaimo in Cedar, BC. Today, we operate on two acres and harvest a variety of hops each fall, including Cascade, Centennial, Cluster and Comet.
Vancouver Island Hop Co. hops are grown organically and tended by hand during the summer growing season. Our growing site is south facing and has a good water supply – two critical factors for successful hop growing.
When it comes to hops, everything, it seems, is extra big! Hops grow quickly (up to a foot per day), they can grow very high (30-40 feet), and when fully mature, the plants are very large (and heavy).
