Hoppy Thursday : Week 3

Week 3 : Getting Taller
The hops are doing really well.  We have one strong shoot from each rhizome now and three of them are climbing up the strings.  The tallest is now just over 29".  We planted these only 18 days ago!  The color of the leaves is an amazing bright green, and I love having bright green plants in the house.
Beer Recommendation:
This local Bostonian brewer is the largest craft brewery in the United States by volume.  Boston Lager is a well balanced beer that features both a malty smooth texture and a floral hops aroma. Sam Adams has even developed a glass - just for tasting their beers.  You can read about it here.
 Buy it if: You are looking to get your toes wet in the craft beer world - this doesn't taste a thing like Bud or other similar mass produced beers.
Don’t buy it if: There is really no reason not to buy and try this classic craft beer.
Buy it for: The game - whether that be basketball playoffs, hockey playoffs, or the baseball game.
Average Cost: $7-8/6pack

  1. I'm eager to see your plants grow. I have a lot of friends who brew their own beer and trade with each other. It's such a fun process, it's only a matter of time before they start growing their own hops. They are trying real hard to get my husband to brew. We already have too many hobbies though. So we go over and help brew and drink their beer when called upon.
