Ocean State Hops is bringing hops back to Rhode Island. Fueled by a passion to cram as many hops into each batch of beer as humanly possible, we decided to start growing our own. And with our recent expansions, we are happy to be able to supply hops to other brewers looking to quench their thirst for hops.

End of Season - 2009

We had a few random second year plants and some first year Cascades left to harvest in early September. The work never stops at Ocean State Hops.

As we said...the fastest hop picker in New England. Kara made short work of the Nuggets.

We had to call in the recruits for the last few first year Cascades that never really took off. Meet Betty - the oldest farmer in Rhode Island (no joke). Watch out though, she doesn't take crap from anyone. And never try to take her picture when she's busy picking.

Just kidding. She's as nice as they come. And apparently she's a natural hop picker.

What a crew...

Peace out!
