Default B-hoppy B-famous

B-hoppy and his hop candy made the HuffingtonPost.

Cooking with Hops: The Bitter Truth

Most of the article is crap, but just at the end of the article, it gets good...

Quote:
And if you want to bring some of your newfound hop-hop-hoppiness with you everywhere you go, consider B-Hoppy, hard candies made with Cascade hops. Maker Bob Bero is an Ohio homebrewer who told me:

"After a failed attempt at making hop-scented soap with some extract that I had obtained from some folks up in Yakima [Washington], I didn't want to waste what was left in the container and it was sitting on the kitchen counter during my Christmas present making period. While making hard candy for the family, I kept looking at the container between batches and finally it became candy." Sweet!

Thanks for noticing Dan. I'm kind of puzzled why she didn't include the pictures I sent her of me working topless in my little hopyard last Summer? When you don't have a website you have to be creative as to how you get your name out. Still haven't heard if Jerry made it into the Hall of Fame yet. Vote early and often!

I know Bob doesn't have a vendor account...and I gain nothing by saying this, so...did you know you can purchase them from Northern Brewer? Or you can visit me in Madison and pick them up at our LHBS.

Me too!

Nice to see you getting famous, Bob.

I'll buy you a beer in April (Easter week-ish) if you'll be around at Vintage Estates, plus see you in Philly in June!
