Harvest 2016

Our First Official Harvest

Harvest officially kicked off for MI Local Hops and Empire Hop Farms on Monday August 22nd. We harvested the variety Willamette from Empire Hops Farm in Empire, owned by the Wiesen family. As of today (Sept 2nd, 2016), three varieties have been harvested…Centennial, Cascade, and Willamette. More Centennial and Cascade will be harvested through out the month of September and breweries like Founders, Short’s, Stormcloud, and Beard’s Brewery will be using Cascade wet hops in their wet hopped fall releases.

To keep up to date on the breweries we’re working with you can check out our “about” page, as well as our social media channels…Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
