TBL, BB2, and Growing Hops in the Mainstream Media

Did you see this article in the Philadelphia Daily News back in the spring? Joe Sixpack spotlighted homegrown hops that Adam and his son and I harvested last fall along with a quote from me in his weekly article that he'd written to spotlight DIY hops as the growing season was beginning. Now, with the harvest upon us and brewers beginning to use fresh hops, I thought I'd throw this back out there again for your consumption. Speaking of which, go grab something to consume, come back, and read the article from Joe's archives. Want more links? Start with Adam's collection of hops growing resources and links over at Beer Bits2. It's not too early to start planning for next year's crop!

Thanks for the link :-) By the way I did make a beer with 100% homegrown hops for the 4th of July celebration this year. Somebody had to carry on the tradition.

BTW its really easy to grow hops.

There was no way I could let that excellent piece of journalism just fade into the dark corners of the Web ;-)
