|Cascade hops at Beaver Run Brewery.|
If you follow that link, you'll arrive at an excellent video that was produced for the project. It highlights the farm and all the effort that goes into farming this crop, not to mention touching on the cultural history that hops are part of. The star of the show is the new hop harvesting machine, which according to the latest project update is up and running - and doing everything it promised to do, reducing hours of picking time to mere minutes!
For my support, I will receive a little premium that includes one pound of Cascade hops produced with the new equipment. Considering most of my brews to date have required two oz. of hops, this will be plenty to get me through the winter.
I'll make a post when I get more information about how the harvest at Condzella went, or when my premium arrives - those will probably be combined into one post. In the meantime, here's a link to my original post on the topic:
