This will mark the first harvest of hops from the Kells Farm; the quarter-acre test plot, originally planted in 2016, included Chinook, Cascade and Centennial varietals. According to head brewer Garrett McAleese, “The goal is to grow one acre of the best yielding varietal while continuing to grow others in the test plot; we plan on eventually using the hops in our IPA year round.”
