Taste the Difference
Quality Hops are grown in Northern Michigan. The long day lengths to flower and produce adequate cone yields and those specific chilling requirements with winter temperatures below 40 degrees F for at least one to two months are ideal for the best-tasting hops. Northern Michigan gives you sufficient spring moisture followed by significant periods of summer sun and balmy heat to ensure ample full development of those lovely chemical compounds. We also have the well-drained, deep, sandy loam soils that gives our hops the difference you can taste.
Michigan used to be a lupulin Shangri-La back in the 1800s. Hops and cherries were the state’s biggest crops, until the hop industry was eradicated by downey mildew, pesky insects called hop louse and drought. But today, Michigan is once again becoming a hop agriculture hub.
