What’s new on the Brewstorian blog? Hop Growers of America presentation: the things I said about hops history.

In mid January I braved the winter snow to travel to Bend to give a talk on the history of hops in America, this post is the text of my talk.


I was part of a history session, sandwiched in between Dr. Al Haunold, who released the Cascade hop and talked about his work in the USDA/OSU public breeding program, and 4 hop growers, some with roots reaching back 6 generations. So there’s some pressure to be correct when you are talking to farmers about their history!

Read the whole talk on the Brewstorian blog.
