One of the most important ingredients in any beer is hops. Not only do hops assist in flavoring the beer, but there are many other purposes that contribute to a beer's quality. One local farm has been growing and harvesting this valuable crop for Saranac for several years and the harvest has become an annual party and you are invited!

This awesome event, which started back in 2011, is taking place on Sunday, August 30th. There will be plenty of hops to pick, BBQ to eat, and of course great beer to drink! Wrobel Farms has been growing hops for F.X. Matt Brewery for four generations and they would love for you to be a part of the continuing tradition. You can register for this event until August 27th and it is on a first come, first serve basis.
