Here are some shots from my brew buddies and my latest brew day. We brewed at one of the guy's dad's place to help harvest some of his hops. My friend's dad claims to be the largest hop farmer in SE Michigan. I think he may be right.

The hops on the trellis are Cascade. Chinook have over taken the chimney and he has a hearty amount of Nugget out front not pictured.

NICE!!! I bet that harvest takes a week.

fathand - sweeeeeet pix.

do you have ropes/chains/etc running alongside the chimney? or a trellis under all that? or are the bines somehow clinging directly to the brick?

Damn! how long did it take to get those beauties to that level?

That is actually my brewing partner's dad's house but I am pretty sure there are no chains or ropes on the chimney, they just climb up the brick.

I think they are 5 years old or so but not 100% sure. We brewed a DIPA and a Black IPA that day and we're picking hops and dropping them right into the brews and we didn't even dent his hop supply.

That is a beautiful sight. He has to have the best yard on the block!
