I'm currently doing a design project for architecture school that incorporates a bar as well as an urban farm. I don't know a lot about growing for beer or any alcoholic drinks, but I was wondering what would be some good products to grow that could be supported in a bar?

you should try to figure out how to incorporate a hydroponic hop farm into a bar.

Hops and Barley are the obvious choice, but hops need a lot of sun and barley needs a lot of space. Any sort of fruit is always nice too.

Is this an outdoor bar or an indoor farm?

hydroponics is something I've been looking into. But wouldn't the size of the hops plants be too large for a hydroponic system?

it's our interpretation as to how to treat the bar as interior or exterior. I've thinking it it's a bit of both where there is interactions between the "bar" and the actual growing spaces

Hydroponics leads to the topic of polyculture. A recirculating system of water going from a fish tank to the garden and returning to the fish. Many people are going to these systems and getting quite creative in what they are growing for fruits and vegetables and raising for protein. I have seen online examples of everything from Tilapia to Shrimp, Catfish to Trout. The fish tank provides all of the nutrients for the plants and depending upon species used, you will need very little to support the protein source.

The best kind of thing to grow and incorporate into a bar, is a profit.

Hops, could be trained to grow as a canopy for a patio cover. Sort of like grapes.
