Last Labor Day weekend we attended the Simple Earth Hops Grand Opening celebration held at the gorgeous Greenspirit Farm.  We were greeted by music from the Beelzebillies band and we sipped some nice German wheat beer.  Everyone seemed to be having a wonderful time and the weather was perfect as you can see below.  Matt Sweeny said that the first harvest was quite good considering that it was the first year of planting.  The flower clusters are dried and are ready to use anytime.  Hops give the distinctive tangy and bitter flavor to beer.  Several home brewers and a couple of microbreweries have shown interest in using his hops.  Local hops for my local beer.  I’ll drink to that!  Cheers.
