Heritage Hops in the Michigan Beer Guide

Heritage Hops is mentioned in the article "Growing Hops in Michigan" in the November-December Michigan Beer Guide which is a feature about Bob Krieger of Saranac who has been successfully growing hops for several years. If you live in Michigan and are a beer enthusiast I highly recomend picking up a copy of the Michigan Beer Guide at your local brewery or fine beer (and wine) store. Not only is packed full of great information, its free. I'll be attending a seminar on growing hops in Michigan later this month and I'm looking forwad to meeting Bob Krieger, Rex Halfpenny (the editor of the Beer Guide) and all the other hop growing enthusiests.

I don't know how I missed your efforts, being pretty attentive to the Michigan beer scene, but I want to say I'm happy for your efforts and wish you great success in your endeavors!

I grow my own hops at home and harvested over three pounds of Cascade, Nugget and Hallertau from my four year old plants this year.

I've added a link to your website in my blog Beer and Firkins. Browse there and you'll see some pics of my hops during last year's growing season and the harvest as well.

Slainte!
