In 2004 I loaded up the whole family into a VW bus and drove around Bavaria. We stopped by the Ayinger Brewery and stayed in the Brewery Guesthouse. We also discovered my Mom's cousin married a hop farmer and they graciously rolled out the red carpet for us. I created a little brewers travelog which you can check out here
. Enjoy the hop porn.
Back in the day, everybody in town turned out to pick hops. Here's my grandma in the fields. The girl in the basket is my aunt.
