Here’s one from the Beer-Stained Letter video archive, a piece from 2008.

That year, Weyerbacher Brewing responded to a hop shortage by taking a shot at growing an acre of hops in northeast Pennsylvania.

The Easton, Pa., brewery got some key knowledge-base assistance from Snyder Farm in Hunterdon County, the Rutgers University research farm that did some hop-growing trials back in the late 1990s. Snyder was thus able to offer Weyerbacher some guidance on its hops project.

Weyerbacher reaped a small, but still impressive, haul in August 2008 that went straight into a fresh-hop harvest ale.
