Excerpt:

The Brewers Association Hop Usage Survey reports:

The top three hops used in 2007-2008, 2008-2009 and calendar 2009 were Cascade, Centennial and Willamette. These three varieties alone accounted for 42%, 44% and 38% of total pounds of hops used in their respective survey years. Craft brewer hop usage is heavily skewed towards aroma varieties.
