Where in the beer world (08.03.17)?

Hop field

Hops - what variety?We haven’t played this game in a while. Probably because nobody plays any more. But the rules are the same. If you think you know where this photo was taken leave a comment.

Bonus points if you can name the variety of hops growing.

    Given your recent trip, I’m going to say Mt Angel, OR and, oh, how about Willamette?

      I guess this means I won’t be posting photos of second-year Simcoes (across the way from where the Mt. Angel abbey brewery will be) in Oregon.

      But everything in Oregon is looking more mature/robust than the field in this photo.

    I am going with somewhere further South, say Missouri, but don’t know where exactly.

    Hmm. I’d say these are Hallertaus in Germany. In the Hallertau region, perhaps?

    First image is Mt. Adams in Yakima Valley. I’ll guess the hop variety as a humulus lupulus neomexicanus variety.

    The photo is from Aucutt Farms just south of Novelty, Mo. I think Kirksville (population 17,500, home of Truman State) is the closest good-size town. John Reinke has planted a half acre of Cascade on land his family has farmed since the mid-19th century. Kind of proof of concept.
