Pilot Brewer Aaron adding fresh hops to the kettle. Yep, brewed Blue Ridge Hop Revival at Basecamp to start the week - using fresh Cascade hops from Whipple Creek Hops. This is the 7th year we've made this beer and in the words of our Brewmaster Jason Oliver, "hops, hops, everywhere" which equates to 160 pounds of fresh wet hops in both 8.5 barrel batches! Let you know when Blue Ridge Hop Revival hits the taps!

The hops in your favorite IPA not only impart a pleasant bitterness to your beer, but also a dose phytoestrogens, which can cause the dreaded Brewer’s Droop.

Due to the growth of our Co-Op we are renting a meeting room at the Best Western in Zion Crossroads, just 10 minutes East of Charlottesville and right off Interstate 64. Lots of good places to get lunch close to the hotel before the meeting. We will also be doing an online web conference for those who want to participate but cannot attend in person. Details on the web conference will be posted next week.
