Hop warehouse destroyed in fire.

Hop warehouse destroyed in fire

Fire, a perennial fear in the hop industry, struck a warehouse owned and operated by Hopunion U.S.A., Inc., on October 11.

The fire, started under undetermined circumstances, destroyed over one

million pounds of hops.

"While it is always unfortunate to see property and inventory destroyed," reported Hopunion president and vice chairman of the board, Dennis Bakos, "this incident in no way hinders our ability to meet our commitments to customers worldwide for high quality hops and hop products."

Bakos added, "The facility that was destroyed was one of nine such warehousing facilities operated by our company in the United States. The strength and size of our firm insures that we will see no interruption in operations."

"I know that many brewers in many regions of the world trust our firm for dependability of supply," Bakos reported. "Despite this setback, Hopunion U.S.A., Inc., will demonstrate its capability to maintain that trust."
