Our harvest beer launch this year was at Nomadic Beers on Saturday 6th October.
The beer, a 4.5% pale called GeeGee after Nomadic’s delivery van The Green Goddess, was made using 8.25kg of Cascade hops grown by the Leeds Co-Hoperative. The event was a great success and the beer went down very well! It was subsequently available at Wapentake and Foley’s.
This is when new members can pick up their plants and a chance to chat about plans for this year. The two events cover a few bases: midweek; weekend; central; historic pub; newish bar/shop; great beer.
Wed 24 January, The Cardigan Arms, 364 Kirkstall Road LS4 2HQ. Facebook Event.
Fri 2 February, The Hop Shack, 135 New Rd Side, Horsforth, Leeds LS18 4QD. Facebook Event.
Once again we are looking for new members. The only difference this time is that new members will get the plants in the winter and as roots (called rhizomes). Your first pack is £20 and any extra plants are £10.
Hopefully the plants will be ready for the launch of this year’s beer in November. Follow us on social media to be sure to know when.
Otherwise there will be another pick-up event will be organised after Christmas.
The 50 Cascade plants arrived today and look very healthy.
