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 works closely with Dark Horse Brewing Co. We’ll tour the farm and hear from the family about their role in Michigan beer.
The tour will also make visits to Dark Horse Brewing Co. and Territorial Brewing Co., another brewery that works with High Five Hops.
A pint or samples at the two brewery stop are also part of the tour.
