Couldn't I just put my rhizomes in a box and take it to the post office to mail them overseas? I mean will they open the box and ask me what's inside?

Of course you can, and the odds of receiving them would be fifty fifty like everything else in life. Perhaps, you have never seen the Australian Customs reality show - they look in everything for drugs.

I am in Tenerife also looking for hop rhizome this season. The only site I have seen in Spain sells rhizomes for 14 euros each!! Robbery.

The Willingham UK site is not much better at 7 pounds apiece. Ridiculous.

Here is a site I came across while searching in Germany:
http://www.eickelmann.de/Hopfen-Shop/Aroma-Hopfen/
5 euros each. Much better.

What I have found to be most promising is the home brewers in Ireland. http://www.nationalhomebrewclub.com/
The guys are what home brewing clubs can be. They have a yeast library. I have seen members posting to say they are willing to help others out with rhizome cuttings. That is the way to build community and brew better beer, and more importantly drink better beer.

But in all, find people who are home brewing in your area, maybe the wine makers know people who brew beer. And post on here your successes.

By the way, I was cutting an over grown palm yesterday and I found a 16 liter glass carboy hiding in the midst. A sign to brew more beer....

I bought from http://www.eickelmann.de/Hopfen-Shop/Aroma-Hopfen/ last year, and the hops arrived in very good conditions. But they sell hop plants, not rhizomes. That's sort of a good news because you don't have to plant the rhizome and wait to see if it will grow or not... I advice you to buy in the autumn when the plants are dormant.
The hops collection isn't very big, compared to Willingham's Nurseries, but the price is too good to refuse it.
I will check out the national home brew club also, but the name says that is national, so i don't think that they will be willing to send outside Ireland. It would be great to form a club like that for the entire European Union XD .

I bought Cascade and Magnum young plants from Eickelmann, wonderful conditions. Unfortunately it seems no one in Europe has Centennial plants/rhizomes
