Kettlehead Returns To The Hop Yard

The Kettlehead crew made a journey to The Hop Yard in Gorham, Maine last Thursday. This was our second trip to gather fresh hops and tour the farm with Terry. This time we were on a mission to gather Centennial Hops for another round of Harvest Ale .

The Hop Yard is a 7th generation piece of family farmland. In years past it was used for hay and livestock. Their onsite processing facility also serves to harvest, dry, bale, and store hops before they are ready for palletization. Every fall we plan on gathering at least 100lbs of wet hops for our harvest ale during peak harvesting season. A big thanks to Terry and Ryan for showing us around the Incredible Hop Yard, we’re looking forward to sharing our second Harvest Ale with all of you!
