Fresh Hops Watch 2017

Visiting Goschie Farms for hops, 2017

It’s been awhile since I’ve attempted to keep track of the fresh hops beers that are coming out, especially with so many breweries in Oregon these days brewing fresh hop beers. Keeping up to date on the Central Oregon is a bit more manageable, so keep watching this post as I will update it with the latest fresh hop beer, news, and events as they come out.
