Hops Crushed

A huge wind and hailstorm caused serious damage to the world’s largest hops growing area of Hallertau and Tettnang. Farmers feared at the very least 2,500 hectares of the total 15,000 hectares planted were damaged by heavy rain in the Hallertau region alone.

In Tettnang it has been reported that as much as 25% of the crop was damaged or destroyed.
