We’ve Got Hops!

Exciting news…The hops we ordered last week have just arrived!  As most of you probably know, there has been a bit of a hop shortage this year, and brewers throughout the craft brewing industry have been scrambling to get their hands on enough hops to meet their production schedules.

Obviously we haven’t been able to start brewing yet, but with the shortage of most hop varieties, and with some varieties being nearly impossible to get these days, I figured I would order some while they were still available and store them in the freezer until we can start brewing.  We ordered 165 pounds in total, which will be just about half of our hop supply for the first year of production.  We were even lucky enough to snag a 44 pound box of Cascades!  Woohoo!
