European Wolf Round Up: COMPLETE

Backers,

The Wolf is secured and will be loaded for shipment next week. Marcin, the farmer pictured with me, is happy to sell his machine so he can upgrade to a larger Wolf.  He is expanding his hopyard to meet new contracts from a large European hop brokerage company. The machine is in excellent working condition and I am excited to get it here for harvest. But there is a lot of work to be done in the hopyard before that.... 

Reward update to follow soon! 

Cheers, 

John

The last week is here...BREAKING NEWS...

We can’t thank you all enough for the tremendous support you have shown our campaign.  We know you agree it is important to restore New York’s rightful place atop the Hop Throne, but more importantly we know you can’t wait to have some locally brewed beer, made from locally grown hops.  We are doing our very best to make sure that happens and that is why we need your support to cross the finish line.   With that in mind as we prepare for our final week we want you to know that several news stories will be coming out about us and we will do our best to share them with you all so that you can share them with your friends who also love and support the Long Island beer industry.   For starters, Sunday afternoon we expect to be featured on News 12.  We were interviewed by News 12’s Doug Geed.  This clip will also air on Monday.  When it does we will be sure and post it to our KickStarter page and share it with you.  We hope you will share it too.   Later on Monday we are doing a photo shoot for another major newspaper.  I can’t wait to tell you more.  Till Monday…

2 weeks to go! - Happy NYC Craft Beer Week!
