On November 15, 2011 at 2PM EST, Dr. Rob Sirrine from Michigan State University Extension and Brian Tennis from the Michigan Hop Alliance will be conducting a webinar on small-scale organic hops production. (A webinar, for those who don’t know, is a seminar conducted on the internet.) We’ve been lucky enough to work with Brian and Rob in the past, and they are very knowledgeable and engaging. You can register on eOrganic, and find out more details by following this link.
Also, don’t forget to sign up for the upcoming NeHA Fall Hop Conference on November 5th in Troy, NY! Yet another reason to make the trek to Troy, recently announced is Hoppy Hour organized by the Northeast Hop Alliance. This event will take place the night before the conference at Brown’s Brewing Co., starting at 5 pm. A group of rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn (just a short drive from Brown’s) has been blocked off for Friday evening. To reserve a room, call 877-782-9444. The Group Name is Cornell University or Fall Hops Conference and the Group Code is CURC. The rate is $119 plus tax. All reservations must be made by the cut-off-date of Monday, October 31, 2011. As always, please be responsible and don’t drink and drive.
