The Hop Research Council is a non-profit organization that funds and directs hop research to benefit the U.S. hop industry. Members include domestic and international brewers, hop dealers, and hop grower organizations.

The Council was established in 1979 by a group of hop industry members that believed in the benefit of a united hop research effort. Today, the original goal remains true. Brewers, Dealers, and Growers work together to fund and direct hop research, ensuring a bright future for the U.S. hop industry.
