Hops A Lot (Part 1)

Hello Good Humans! Welcome to the 19th episode of Short’s Cast. We are going to be bringing you a series on the beloved humulus lupulus plant. It seems this species of the Cannabaceae family is making quite a lot of noise along the 45th parallel and that just happens to be where we live. Short’s loves hops, and Michigan, so this series is dedicated to them.

Our head beer liberator Woj gives us a breif history on hops and beer. Pauline has a great interview with Lynn of Great Lakes Hops. They are doing some great research on the plant, creating, tweaking, and discovering just how far hops can evolve in the state of Michigan.

Our music in this episode is provided by the very talented band The Moxie Strings who will be performing at the pub in Bellaire Friday, May 23.

Cinnabilly is hitting the shelves in late May and Pauline breaks it down in this weeks beer release.
