Wisconsin Hops & coops – Growing & harvesting for craft beer

Best Documentary Award at 2013 Wildwood Film Festival, this is a story about the renewed efforts to grow #hops in Wisconsin, the groups & cooperatives supporting these new growers, and the distribution of locally grown hops to craft brewers around the state. The story goes from the roots (rhizomes) to the 30' plants filled with bitter bud that are processed and distributed to brewers for making beer.

Participants in this video include Simple Earth Hops, folks from the Wisconsin Hop Exchange, Gorst Valley Hops, The Grumpy Troll Brewery, Vintage Brewing Co, and a fun little song I found to end it with from Beatnik Turtle (Beer Beer Beer at thesongoftheday.com)
