Taste the Difference
Travel 15 miles east of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and you will come to Lake Leelanau. It is a hearty year-round destination; however, as summer comes along, vacationers flock to the area to enjoy its scenic beauty, boating, quaint shops and quiet charm. In the surrounding area, sightseeers can make short trips to Leland, Suttons Bay, Glen Arbor and Northport, supporting agri-tourism with visits to nearby orchards, wineries and many breweries, which makes it the perfect place for Hang Over Hops.
With family ties to the area, it was the perfect location to both embrace the local beer culture while also embracing the outdoors. With this said, Hang Over Hops planted their first seeds and opened in the spring of 2016.
Andrew Putt, owner of Hang Over Hops, developed his passion for farming while growing up in Auburn, Michigan, where farming is a way of life. He attended Michigan State University and graduated with a degree in agriculture. It was at MSU that his research put him on the path to choose hops as his crop of choice.
He was officially interested and committed to hops after attending the Michigan Hops and Barley Conference held annually in various Michigan cities. From there, Andrew set out to cultivate as much knowledge as he could on his newfound passion.
His 20-acre farm, provides prime conditions for growth and production of quality Chinook and Willamette hops. This year (2018) marks his first harvested crop, and Hang Over Hops is eager to share this successful experience with you.
Choose Chinook for mild to medium-heavy, spicy, piney, and grapefruit flavors ~ or Willamette for its mild and pleasant, slightly spicy, fruity, floral, and earthy subtleness.
