This site is intended to track the events surrounding a small hop garden I have been growing next to Madden Beverage in Southern Maine, and to provide some informative insights into the craft of growing hops. There isn’t a whole lot to it, just a trial-by-fire attitude and a small bit of care.  These are hardy plants that will grow with or without your technical know-how.  Hop growing is a hobby that has excited me greatly, and I hope it can rouse the same passion from you. But like any hobby, it is one where you will get out exactly what you put in. My name is Tom and I am a freelance homebrewer and hop gardener.  My family has owned a specialty beer and wine store in Southern Maine for over 10 years, so I have been in the business of beer for quite some time.  I hope you find this information accurate and informative on your quest to create a great garden, and eventually a great homebrew.
