Matt Sweeny of Simple Earth Hops has recently told me about a great opportunity to help and be involved with his passion for hops.  He is fundraising through Kickstarter, a web based platform for creative projects all over the world.  The individual/group present their ideas, selects a deadline date, and a monetary goal.  They receive funding  for their project only if the goal is met by the deadline.  Please check it out!

Also, the Harvest Brewfest is coming up on Saturday, August 20th.  Tickets can be purchased here.  There will be opportunities to see the farm, harvest some hops, talk to Matt, and taste beer all day!  Below is a video of their first year in business.  Happy summertime all! 🙂
