What is hop·nólogy?
Beer is good food. Except when it isn't. We are living in a wonderful and yet concerning time to be a beer fan; there is some great stuff out there, and also a fair number of scary witches-brew concoctions that shouldn't be allowed out of the basement.
Growing hops, like most things involving Mother Nature, is a mix of science and art. We are Scientists who understand the interactions between soil, nutrients, temperature, water, time and hops. Mixed together well and treated with scientific parameters - and some good old fashioned gut feel! - you can have an outstanding product. That's Part 1.
Part 2 is what happens when those quality hops go into your beer. Once again it's Science, mixed with equal parts time, patience, hops, other non-hops stuff, more time, and more patience.
At hop·nólogy we take pride in teaching you one simple equation:
Science + Art = Quality Hops and Wonderful Beer
