    ABOUT ME

  • Hi! We are A Ton of Hops co-owners, Eric and Vince. Together we have started a small hops brokerage, selling hops by the pound and ounce. We brew mostly ales and hope to open a microbrewery in 10 years or less.

  • Eric-"I got into brewing after listening to my dad tell me about the beer he brewed when I was very young. I bought the book Homebrewing for dummies. I read this book for about a year again and again. I bought my first 5 gallon setup in 2000. I did extract beers then extract with grain for 9 years then in January 2010 I did all grain for the first time. For a year I have continued to produce all grain beers. I have a water cooler for a mashtun and find 13-14 pounds of grain is all I can do in this system. I use a turkey fryer for the boiler. I really like english milds and stouts as well as wheat beers. I use wheat in almost all of my brews and last October I made a very good high hopped Brown with all Hallaurtar hops.....yummy! I have made several historic beers and entered the Sam Adams Longshot contest."
