I have some friends who are starting up a brewery in Denver. Their brewery is in the Littleton/Highlands Ranch area…if you’re in Denver you should check out their taproom when they open this winter!
…This connection allowed this girl to go on a (glorious) escapade out to Hops-Meister hop farm (Nor Cal) to buy hops from the harvest this fall.
It was a beer lovers dreeeeaaaammm…..
Cascade…Chinook…Ivanhoe… and their experimental Gargoyle variety. I was mentally swimming in large vats of fresh hops the entire afternoon.
The farm is family owned by some super nice people. The owner of the farm showed us around and let us take in the vistas from the top of the mountain… Hops and world class scenery. It doesn’t get much better than that!
