An out-take from the forthcoming documentary about craft brewing in Minnesota. In it we meet George Shetka of Hippity Hops Farm and The Top Hop. He describes the process of growing hops at his organic farm in Forest Lake, MN. The video includes shots of the hops as the 2012 harvest began with a celebration of the connection with Lift Bridge Brewing Company from Stillwater, MN. Matt Hall, Head Brewer at Lift Bridge, listens attentively and, no doubt, contemplates the wet hopped beer to be brewed at the Pickin' n Grinnin' event scheduled for the next day.
This clip is akin to Brewing Compost (vimeo.com/68303088) because they examine the positive impact of the emerging craft beer movement on associated businesses.
