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.

April Update

Ocean State Hops is moving up in the world, literally. About 4 feet to be exact. The poles in our first 3 rows were pretty tired so we decided to take this opportunity to give our hops some room to stretch out. The new poles stand about 17 feet above ground - 4.5 feet taller than the rest. Aside from Summit and Tupelo rolling in some mud, everything went smoothly.

The new cables were put up last weekend and the plants are well on their way. More pics to follow...
