Lecture & Beer Tasting: Growing Hops from Colonial Days Through the Present

August 26, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT

 

Dawn C. Adiletta, author, historian, and farmland preservationist discusses how domestic hop production began in New England as early as the 1620s and was a mainstay in kitchen gardens as well as a valuable cash crop. Today, combining the best of ancient traditions and modern technology, farmers once again cultivate what ancient Britons called the wicked weed. A brief presentation by the brew masters of Little House Brewing Company in Chester, CT followed by a sampling of their latest beer concludes the event.
