Wicked Hops Kickstarter
Establishing a hop yard in good old Maine! Hoping to grow great hops for local breweries and home brewers!
Wicked Good Hops Makes Wicked Good Beer :D
I've always been a fan of growing food out of my gardens and this past year I've experimented with growing hops. I found it to be very exciting as well as tasty!
I've read articles about how many large brewing companies buy up hop yards leaving few options for many nano-breweries and home brewers.
Many hops are imported from large hop yards from down south making small scale operations too pricey. So I've decided to help out by creating Wicked Hops to help those who need hops for their projects big or small.
Whether it be for home brews or small breweries my goal is make life and beer a little better.

Risks and challenges
Acquiring enough land to grow large amounts of hops to help everyone, including neighboring states, will be a lengthy process. We'll start small and work our way up.
Maine's growing season is shorter than states in the equator. Hops grown here may not be as bitter do to that fact. Adding more hops may be a way around that.
Hops do grow in Maine. It's a pretty tough plant. A few of the bigger Maine breweries, whom I've researched, have established hop yards of their own.
I've tried growing them in my gardens. They grew great and had a great flavor if I do say so myself. :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
