Great Article! Hops were once a major cash crop for the United States. The growing trend for American Craft Brewers to utilize local ingredients will undoubtedly increase the need for more local and regional hop production.

Great article! Glad to see so many people supporting Michigan beer. I have tried beer at many of the breweries here and like most of them, but Frankenmuth is probably one of my favorite breweries in Michigan. http://frankenmuthbrewery.com/blog/brewery/ne...
