Here is a photo of the hops garden that we built last weekend. Special thanks to the ragtag crew of mavericks who assembled to design and build this big project. The structures are a unique hop trellis design created by Jordan Clough and his landscape architecture firm, Yardcraft. You can read more about them at Yardcraft.net.
The hop trellis is called the Hopsail. It is made of hand-cured bamboo and the arms can be raised and lowered via pulley for easy modifications and harvesting. It is a totally unique design and the pictures really don’t give you the total sense of scale and feng shui. It’s worth checking out.
Each bed will contain other brewing ingredients as well as hops, including black currants, raspberries, and white pumpkins.
