just so you know, brewing your own beer with hops that you grew is as rewarding as it gets.

hey, look… shirts!

for whatever reason we never got around to making shirts.

Two Guys Drinking at a Bar is pretty funny. Check out all 14 episodes. Although you might want to wait a bit between watching them. I watched them all in a row and got annoyed. But it wouldn’t be soooo bad spread out over a week or 14.

The beginning of the year means the arrival of hop rhizomes. These are the beginning roots of a hop plant which grows as a vine up to 25 feet during the season. A rhizome is genetically identical to the plant it came from. At the end of the season the plant will die but the rhizome will live on. If you make it to the Bistro you can buy your own rhizomes to grow.
