Take a look at the percentage of crop acreage represented by only a few varieties of hops grown in the Northwest. This can't be a good thing for those of us who like to try new and unknown hop styles!

Craft brewing is a drop in the BMC ocean and homebrewers are an amoeba in that drop.
We don't need many acres to meet the need for variety.
