OSU Libraries and Press

As the first archive in the United States dedicated to hops and beer, OHBA will bring together a wealth of materials that will enable people to study and appreciate these movements.

Production of hops and beer are part of Oregon’s identity, engaging both the general public and the scholarly community with our rich history of researching and producing world-class hops and beer.

From scholars to people with an interest in local and creative products, students to alumni, hops farmers to brewers, the opportunities for community engagement and scholarly use are vast.

Seeing a need to save the intertwined story of hops and craft brewing in Oregon, the Special Collections & Archives Research Center at OSU Libraries & Press established the Oregon Hops & Brewing Archives in 2013.

Join us on March 28, 2014

For a night of thoughtful discussion on the past and future of

Oregon hops and brewing.
