Update: FAQ Video
Osborn Brewing is a homebrew shop in Monroe, Ohio. As brewers know, having fresh ingredients is one of the most important factors in making beer. Unfortunately, right now there aren't a lot of hop options for local brewers.
We are in the process of turning 86 acres of land into a hop farm. This will provide locally sourced hops to area brewers from the hobby to professional scale. This also means that when it comes time to harvest, brewers will have a source of fresh "wet hops" to use in their seasonal brews. Part of the money raised by your backing will go towards making this a reality. By backing this project, you will help bring us closer to having 100% locally made beers in our area.

Risks and challenges
Great breweries are popping up in Dayton and Cincinnati. We want these breweries to stick around and crank out delicious beer for a long time. Right now, these breweries don't have any local options for their hop needs. It can be costly to ship large orders of hops. By having a local option, the hops only need to travel 30 minutes or less. Of course it will take a lot of work to turn 86 acres of land into a hop farm, but if we secure funding by the end of the year, we can have crops as early as 2014.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
