Pint Talking

Sep 22, 2023

This week I visited with Jeff and Shari Bailey at Auburn Acres Hop Farm in Auburn, Ohio. They started growing hops in a small section of their property for their home brews early on, and after 8 years they have grown it to 1 acre featuring hop varieties such as Triple Pearle, Vista, Chinook, and Triumph. During our sit down we talked about everything that is involved in running a hop farm including the prep work in the spring to post harvest. We also focused on their newly opened event space which is two barns joined together that date all the way back to the late 1800’s. During the show we also got to sample some of the beer from local breweries that are using their hops.

Beer Selection:

·       LOL (Akronym) – Lager 5.4%

·       Auburn Beaver Tail Ale ( Bummin Beaver Brewing) – Pale Ale 6.1%

·       Fire Cat (Crooked Pecker Brewing) IPA – 7.3%

·       Irish Stout (8th Day Brewing) Dry Irish Stout – 7.0%
