The Fusion of Hops and Heads


Hop Harvest Time At Elk Mountain

It was raining lightly when I awoke at dawn, and the soft echoing sounds it made falling on my tent was awesome. It was day two of my trip to the Elk Mountain Hop Farm, and I hurriedly readied myself for what would be a full day exploring the farm and learning the whole hop harvesting process courtesy of the Goose Island and Anheuser-Busch crews.



Glamping With Goose Island

I was invited out to Idaho last week to hang out with Goose Island and Anheuser-Busch and to tour Elk Mountain Hop Farm – a truly amazing place in a spectacular mountain setting. It was a full day of learning the ins and outs of the hop-farming process and two fun nights around campfires, drinking great beer late into the evening with brewers, beer-savants, and hop warriors…

Unearthing The Craft – The Granite State Has A New Hot Commodity

It must be hard to be sandwiched between two brewing titans like Vermont and Maine. New Hampshire is as tried and true, dyed-in-the-wool New England as it gets (the state’s motto is Live Free Or Die after all), but the Granite State’s brewing industry has miles to go before it sleeps. New Hampshire may be late in the brewing game, but its will is strong, and breweries are opening across the region. The road is long and winding and not without its missteps and sprained ankles, but the horizon looks promising with what’s bubbling in the 603.


Diamond Knot – Summer is in Session

It’s summer! For those under 21, that means summer camp. For diehard homebrewers and devout bloggers, that might mean Beer Camp (looking at you, Sierra Nevada and Baird Brewing!). However, for everyone else, summer is the season of choice for outdoor revelry at any number of beer festivals around the world.

Nothing slakes that late summer thirst when you're relaxing on a beach, camping near a lake, or just grilling on your deck, like a tall, frosty, malty glass of Pumpkin beer. Are you serious craft beer community? Seasonal creep gives me the seasonal creeps. Despite many bemoaning the short summer season here in New England, we’re already witnessing beers packed with sugary pumpkin additives and Oktoberfest-shoved piles in stores. If the sight of pumpkins and Märzens sitting next to lemon shandies and beergaritas looks strange, it’s not from drinking too much.
