Rockford Brewing Company is very lucky to have strong relationships with our local hop growers, like Hopyards of Kent . Today, Aaron Trapp, Sales Manager & Brewer and Tiffany Ewigleben, Marketing Consultant, had the chance to check out a few acres of their hops with Jim Parks & Craig Van Driel.
RBC is all about Fresh, Local, and Timely, and you can’t get much fresher than this!
Cascade, Chinook, and a special variety of hops called Michigan Heritage were some of the deliciousness being grown here.
Michigan Heritage hops are a newer varietal, with only four acres in not only the state (obviously), but in existence.
Cirtrusy, aromatic and lush, these hops are featured in our Harvest Hub. We can’t wait for you to taste them, but since you HAVE to wait, why don’t you enjoy these pictures from our morning?..
