DODGEVILLE, Wisconsin (May 27, 2010)--Today, Matt Sweeny announced the
launch of Simple Earth Hops, a Dodgeville, Wisconsin new farming
business, who will provide ethically grown hops to local beer
Simple Earth Hops is a new 1/4 acre hopyard located at Greenspirit
Farm CSA in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. The hopyard was founded with the
idea of providing a much needed agricultural product for local craft
brewers. Simple Earth Hops was established to demonstrate that local
farmers can produce a consistent, sustainable supply of ultra high
quality hops by working directly with local craft brewers while still
maintaining a focus on ecology, the land and the people involved.
"Craft beer producers have made it clear that they desire a local
source of hops. Simple Earth Hops will address this need for a local
sustainable supply of hops by small locally owned craft beer
Look for Simple Earth Hops to elaborate more on the details of a Grand
Opening hopyard tour/beer tasting event in late July, 2010 and for the
hopyard harvest tour & beer tasting in early Fall, 2011.
About Simple Earth Hops
Funding for Simple Earth Hops is provided in part by a 2009 NCR-SARE
(USDA) grant. This small-scale commercial hopyard has been established
by the Sweeny family of Dodgeville, Wisconsin who slowly grow earth
friendly hops for local brewers with similar locavore ethics.
