2010 Hop Harvest Time

Does he look happy?: Doug Ellenberger, Everybodys BrewingIt is hop harvest time again, and we're finally receiving fresh hops from local growers. Those of you who planted your own hops should be harvesting soon. Our Nugget vines are coming down as we speak. We'll place the cones onto reclaimed window screens and keep a fan underneath them to dry them out.

The picture on the right (click to enlarge) was recently sent to us by Doug Ellenberger, who is a brewer at Everybody's Brewing. We just met Doug at the Laurelwood Collaborative Brewer's Dinner (which blew our minds, by the way).
