Peter and Chris joined Ohio brewers and growers at this years annual Ohio Craft Brewers Association (OCBA) and the Ohio Hop Growers Guild (OHGG) in Columbus, Ohio. The conference was well attended and was packed with informative and innovative sessions for both ends of our beloved industry.

At the show we were thrilled to premier our 2019 line up of boutique trademarked hop varieties propagated by our awesome friends and genetic geniuses over at Great Lakes Hops. Receiving exceptional interest in our pelletized sensory packs for a few of the new arrivals for the 19’ season. We are pleased with the positive feedback and look forward to the response from the brewers we met with. 2019 is going to be another incredible year for Ohio craft beer, and as always, we are so very blessed to be a part of it!

In addition to getting some coveted face time with those artists of the sudsy libation we all work so hard to promote, we were impressed with the quality and level of sophistication from the vendors and the learning sessions for the hop growers. Engaging sessions on new regulations, growing techniques, and traceability highlighted the show and we couldn’t agree more with the themes. Boondocks is fully supportive and joins in the continued evolution of sustainability and integrity of our fellow growers here in the midwest.

As the midwest market continues to mature it is inspiring to see the growers, brewers, and propagators in our region continue to innovate, bringing a much desired superior level of quality and uniqueness you cannot find elsewhere.

Please join us in a toast to the 2019 growing and brewing season!
