After working in Washington State (the world’s largest hop producer) for the past 1.5 years, Brian will be moving back to Ontario to start his own company and focus on growing hops, brewing beer, and malting grains.

In preparation for spring arrival, Brian has moved several potted hop plants indoors to start propagating by stem cuttings.
It was a busy weekend (July 19-20) at the Chase Farm Hopyard. We are working hard at building the trellis system to support the future plants. Poles have been set and cabling is now complete. Thanks to Amy for her skilled tractor driving!
The Brewer’s coalition entered 5 beers in competition! After judging in others categories last week-end, we are now looking forward to the Award ceremony on Friday 11th. Why?
After brewing all winter, we are very happy to launch our website and participate to our first homebrew competition.
