On April 5th, 2017, NWC hosted our first Growing Hops Seminar, which was attended by over 70 people! There were a wide range of interests, from home-growers looking at a few plants in their backyard to potentially 15 acres of hops. There was a lot packed in to just an afternoon, but attendees were attentive and had really great questions. We were joined by two NWC students who presented their economic analysis of a (theoretical) 20 acre hopyard based in Wyoming, as well as two professional brewers who gave attendees insight on the hops market from the buyer's perspective. After the conference several attendees joined us in the field to take a look at the emerging hops buds and the Hopster 5P. We also had an informal tour of the WYOld West brewhouse. Below are photos of the event and then links to each of the presentations given.
