The end of August and early September marks the peak of hop season. Farms across the state are harvesting their hop crops for breweries all over Michigan and the other parts of the world.

The tour, which originates at the Old Burdick’s Bar & Grill inside the Radisson Plaza Hotel in downtown Kalamazoo, will visit Marty Moga and his family at High Five Hops Farm in Marshall. The small farm has worked closely with Dark Horse Brewing Co., Latitude 42 Brewing Co. and others. We’ll tour the farm and hear from the family about their role in Michigan beer.

The tour will also make visits to Handmap Brewing Co. and Territorial Brewing Co.

A pint or samples at the two brewery stop are also part of the tour.
