Because of the number of people who are interested in growing hops or buying local hops, Chris Reedy has initiated a local hops group. This is a brand new idea, so we don't know what the structure will turn out to be, who will run it, etc. But Chris is willing to take the lead to help us set up a good communications network so we can readily share information. On Friday night he named the group the Eastern Hops Guild and set up a blog for it at http://easternhopsguild.blogspot.com/. Sign on and help us grow this group!
