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.

Pick Your Own This Weekend!

Harvest is here! We're going to start off with pick-your-own hops this Sunday the 25th from 10:00-4:00. Come by the farm and get a vine to take home or hang out right at the farm to pick (bring your own paper bags if you're going to pick at the farm). $12 per vine and we have Cascade and Newport available. The farm is located on Route 2 in Exeter just south of Schartner Farms (directly south of Hallene Farm). Turn onto James Place, a small dirt road, and follow the signs to the hops! Hope to see you there.

Pick Your Own Hops!

We've got 4 words to get your day started right: Pick Your Own Hops. That's right, in just a few weeks OSH will be inviting homebrewers and hop lovers alike to the farm for pick your own hops. We'll cut a vine down on the spot for you to ...take home and pick yourself (or pick at the farm if you'd like). We'll be posting specific dates and times as we get closer to harvest so don't make any plans from now through mid-September.
