Hops Seminar & Farm Tour
***This trip is sold out***
Learn about hops by actually walking through a hop farm, seeing hop processing facilities, and doing sensory training with the real deal right in your own hands. This trip is focused on beverage industry professionals, people formally studying beer, and ultra enthusiasts. This experience only comes once a year due to Hop harvest time, and is available nowhere else in the Midwest.

--Please understand that this is an expensive trip and each ticket is required to cover costs. Therefore, refunds on tickets can only be issued if we can find a replacement for you. We will do everything we can to facilitate that should the need arise.
