American Hops in Russia

For more than 30 years, we have served the global brewing industry, supplying quality, innovative hop products. As the craft brewing industry continues to expand across the globe, we are committed to form strategic partnerships with approved distributors to work alongside our direct regional sales team. Russia in particular has experienced significant growth in the craft beer community, counting more than 1000 breweries across the region, 600 of which are craft breweries. In response to this growth, YCH has partnered with three new distributors, GreenGod, Beer Resource and Strategy 21.

By working with these local distributors, we are able to offer a variety of options to craft breweries, big and small, to get the best hops into their beer – be it working directly with YCH, or via one of the approved distributor partners. These partnerships also create value for the brewing customers as they allow for more flexible delivery sizes, improved delivery times, access to local YCH inventory, simplified import procedures and the option to purchase in their local currency.

Each of these three distributors, GreenGod, Beer Resource and Strategy 21, not only benefit customers but also align with YCH’s company values. They each value YCH’s philosophy of providing a fair return to growers to ensure they can continue growing quality hops, understanding that great beer is made of great ingredients. Quality assurance is at the forefront of their business.

In addition, their staff members are knowledgeable about beer, operating their own in-house breweries to test recipes and new innovative techniques, giving them the ability to provide advice and local brewing support. They also offer optimum cold storage facilities, as well as cold transport and warehouses from the western regions to the most remote eastern part of Siberia.
