Calling out for our community backyard hop growers!

Written By Sonia Preisler 05 Sep 2018
Calling out for our community backyard hop growers!
T'is the season for our annual wet-hop brew! 
Calling all our amazing community backyard hop growers! Harvest your hops and meet us at the brewery this weekend! September 7 through 9th (Friday- Sunday). Thanks again for all your support! Funds from the hop plants sold at the brewery go directly to Autism Behavioural Services! 

 

General tips:

  • Wear gloves! The stems and leaves can be very irritating to the skin. You can pick your hops from a ladder, but the easiest way is to cut the vines down a few feet above the ground. Separate the cones into a basket or pail, keeping them as free from stems or leaves as possible.
  • Seal in a plastic bag and keep cool until you bring them to the brewery!
  • Bring them any time this weekend between (Friday- Sunday)

 

COMMUNITY BREW DATE: Monday, September 10th

  • Please feel free to come in & see what happens on a brew day!
  • We’ll start brewing at 11am & community hops will be thrown into the kettle at approx. 2pm

 

COMMUNITY BREW LAUNCH PARTY: Saturday, September 29TH

This year we will be celebrating our launch of the ‘Community Brew’ on the same day as our Oktoberfest! Family friendly—come enjoy food, music, brews & celebrate our community!
