Detroit isn't just not all bad it's all good. Only thing Detroit brewers are murdering are ignorant preconceptions and bad jokes.

Keep us updated Black Bottom!

Much respect and love the local flavor.

Keep good records so the rest of us in the area can get a leg up on what does/does not work for our area.

From what I can tell after months of diligent research about hops cultivation, crowns are definitely the way to go and Great Lakes Hops is the best place to get them hands down. I've seen their facility, it's a 5 acre marvel of modern horticulture. I was there on a Saturday afternoon a couple weeks back. Long after everyone else had gone home for the weekend, I was honored to be given a personal two hour tour by the owner who built every nut and bolt of the place over the last 28 years. I highly recommend GLH for the two simplest yet most important reasons; great product, great customer service. It's obvious they have a passion for hops and their friendly, genuinely helpful and hospitable customer service is something you just don't get to often these days.
Took your advice and got three crowns. Perle, cascade, and magnum.
