Can Germany, Slovenia, New Zealand, and Australia be listed under the grown region when listing hops? We would love to list the great countries these hops come from but have to click unknown often instead.
Thanks for the question! “Grown In” is for state rather than country. This optional field was added to the advanced search years ago for the purpose of giving more detail within a country (ie brewers searching for hops grown in their state because they are required to purchase local ingredients for their farm brewery license). We assume that the country code, which is always mandatory, always takes care of identifying the country of origin. Let us know if that doesn’t make sense. Regards, John
