This forum's moderators are allowing up to three images per week, so share some work!Personally, despite stomping around in many a farmer's field, I've never run into a hop yard. Common in many places, but not 'round these parts. These particular few acres of hops were being grown for local use by a relatively new brewery in Northern Virginia. We tasted our way through some of their hard work (the Irish Mahogany Ale was my favorite). So, here's a young-ish hops vine, climbing its way up a network of 12-foot high suspended ropes, soon to be harvested for its bitter but beer-vital cones. Shot something you've never seen before in person? Share some photos!
