Fresh Hops for the Home Brewer!

Every brewer knows the secret to the best brew is fresh hops. Yet unless the home brewer knows enough about hops to grow his own he will never know the thrill of brewing with wet (i.e.- fresh) hops. That is about to change!

Russell Bergdolt Farmstead of Pulaski County, Indiana is growing a limited acreage of sustainably grown hops just for the home brewer. The hops can be picked up on site on the announced day of harvest. The hops can also be delivered to the doorstep of the home brewer in fresh and ready-to-brew condition on, or the day after, the day of harvest. They can also be delivered overnight.

 Wet hops are reserved on a first come-first-served-basis with a 10% deposit.

In the event of a poor crop performance, or our inability to fill all our orders, all  deposits on unfulfilled orders will be promptly refunded within 10 business days following harvest.
