I had thought this was talked about before an Northern Brewer was the sole importer because AB owned the farms.

2017 article

 

 

 

Hundreds of U.S. craft brewers that had been experimenting with a selection of South African-grown hops will no longer have access to the proprietary supply after Anheuser-Busch InBev, which owns the farm, said it would reserve nearly 100 percent of the latest yield for its own brands.

I just ordered 2oz packets of the African Queen and Southern Promise; just for a hop tasting panel for the brew club. was not aware of the AB nonsense. they are either going to be really good, or really bad.
