I really love fresh hop beers and this year I would like to find a place where I can buy some fresh off the vine, so I can attempt a batch or two.

Does anyone in know of a farm in Colorado that would allow a home brewer to buy (and maybe pick myself) hops fresh from the vine?

I contacted Palisade Organic Hops Farm, but they only have Crystal and I was hoping for a little variety or at least something I am familiar with. I was hoping for Colombus/Cascade/Centennial/Chinnok, etc...

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, it is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." --Jack Handey

Crooked Stave's Fertile Soil got their hops from

Jack Rabbit Hill Farm (

So you could try contacting them?

You could also check out the Brews Brothers of Pike Peak, I know a lot of those guys grow their own.
