What’s your favourite hop? Bramling Cross. Beautiful blackcurrant aromas which go perfectly with my favourite style of beers. What’s your favourite beer? Mmm, tricky one.
If you would like to collect an order for brewing ingredients and brewing aids while you are in the area you can do so. It’s the same set up as usual for collections, orders must be in by 10:00 the day before and collections can only be made from The Hop Store, Monksfield Lane between 09:00 and 16:30. With staff at the HopWalk, we are unable to be flexible on this.
£TBC/kg Must be paid for two days before the HopWalk.
Please remember that 5kg to 8kg of green hops are the equivalent brewing value to 1kg of dried hops.
£TBC/ea Cash directly to the farm on HopWalk day.
1 bine is approximately 6ft long and should be hung as soon as possible after you get home.
Green hops are only available during the harvest period as they are picked from the bine and used, ideally, within 24hrs. The freshest hops allow brewers to craft beers that give completely different characteristics, flavours and aromas.
Cones at harvest have moisture of nearly 80% before they are dried down to below 12% for packing. Therefore we suggest that you increase the addition rate by five to eight times more than you would normally use
Ad Hop Brewing told us what they would do with their green hops after they’d collected them from our HopWalk in 2019.
The Charles Faram HopWalk is free of charge for two guests. Pre-booking is the only way to ensure your 2 complimentary spaces. Additional guests or guests arriving on the day without pre-booking will be charged at the full rate of £30 per person per day.
We strive to ensure a productive and insightful programme. Therefore, we implement a cancellation charge of £30 after 28th August and a no show charge of £30 for non-attendance on the day for each day.
The event is by invitation only, but if you think that you’ve been missed then get in touch
