Coming Soon to a Beer Near You!
Using the traditional, black locust post design, we have created a landscape that is both agriculturally sound, and visually stunning. Surreal by design, a walk through a hops yard can be sensory overload as green giants immerse you in an aroma of what can only be described as, "Margaritaville." We look forward to giving you the tour!
We welcome everyone in the community interested in learning more about hops growing and the hop yard building process to reach out to us. We will post updates about our experiences throughout our journey on Facebook, so be sure to like our page here!
Hops on The Farm
Cascades have a flowery and spicy, citrus-like quality with a slight grapefruit characteristic, and are used in: Pale Ale's IPA's and Porters. Crystal hops are often referred to as the earthy and herbal hop with its specific aroma descriptors as woody and green. Bred in 1983 by the USDA, Crystal, is a triploid aroma-type cultivar from Hallertau Mittelfrüh, Cascade, Brewer's Gold and Early Green. It is primarily grown in Oregon and has become increasingly popular among craft brewers due to its versatility in a variety of beer styles. We look forward to bringing this West Coast hop to Virginia, and also have plans to experiment with neomexicanus hops.
We are excited to work with local, Virginia breweries over the coming years growing and creating hoppy goodness that is signature to our Hop Yard!
