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.

2010 Early Summer Update

The 2010 growing season is off to a great start. We've been busy building the new trellis, tying up the strings, training the bines, weeding, mowing, weeding, mowing, weeding. You get the point...

The new plants are starting to take off now, and the older plants are already starting to flower. It's always exciting to see the new buds for the first time. We're experimenting with a few different methods of training the bines and pruning this year. There are a lot of different opinions out there as to the "best" way so we're going to see what works best around here.

It's been a while since our last post since we've been so busy at the farm so we'll come back soon with a bunch of pictures to make up for it. The wait will be worth it!
