Hop Exchange Website Created to Enable Trade of Hops Between Brewers

Everybody who has a stake in the brewing or hospitality industries or their wider supply chain sectors will know that the last 12 months have been very challenging. With pubs closed for a significant part of the last year, breweries have had to innovate and in some places, hibernate whilst waiting for demand to return.

With that in mind, an online hop exchange platform has been created to enable brewers to trade hops directly between themselves, safely and authentically. Hop Market ( is launched this week and to support the industry by allowing brewers to list their surplus hops to buy and sell on the platform easily and seamlessly between one another. Allowing the fair and transparent online exchange of hops between breweries via a simple, straightforward, online platform.

Hop Market was set up by business owner Tom Veal, who has a passion for supporting businesses and helping them future proof and grow their online revenues. Tom’s ambition is to support the brewery community with a platform driven by the needs of the community itself and welcomes all ideas to improve it for the benefit of the community.

Once brewers sign up and list their available hops for sale, hops will be available from brewers all over the UK in various size packages and at various price points, meaning those in need can choose what suits them at any particular moment and not have to sign contracts or give commitments in these uncertain times.

The flexibility offered by Hop Market will be game-changing: it will enable more innovation, allowing brewers to try out more recipes by ordering smaller amounts of the hops they may not have initially intended to try, or may not have tried before. Hops will be shipped quickly and directly, enabling brewers to make decisions more rapidly about their plans and brewing schedules.

All purchases on Hop Market are protected by an escrow payment protection. Once an order is placed, the funds are held in escrow until the hops are received and checked for their quality and accuracy of listing, before releasing the funds to the seller. This ensures both the buyers and sellers are fully protected and able to use the platform with confidence.

Further to that, listing stock online is effortless. The Hop Market online platform is easy to use and manage, giving control to the user. And if you have a lot of stock to list, Hop Market will even assist and offers to list the stock on your behalf and offer automatic stock updating.

The Hop Market launch enables great flexibility in hop buying for the foreseeable future. Sign up for a free account today:
