Here’s what happened for the last season:-
The 2017 East Bristol Hops season is officially go! If you want to order more hops or get involved for the first time, all you need to do is fill out this form:
Deadline for ordering is 6th March, but to help us plan and pre order the hops please try and get the order in well before this.
What is it all about?
Last year we were approached by Diarmid, Rahima and Toby who planned to get a group of fellow Bristolians to grow hops with us to brew the beer in the Autumn. We were delighted to get involved and the response was fantastic; over sixty growers got involved producing 7kg of fresh, green hops that we added to the beer at a giant hop-stuffing party in September. 22 casks were made which sold across our five pubs and freehouses; it sold out in a week!
A competition was held for the name, the winner was Easton Promise.
This year we’re aiming for 20 kilos of hops so the beer is all-local.
STOP PRESS!! We harvested 21.1kg. Yay!
