NorCal Hop Seminar
Join the NorCal Hop Growers Alliance for our 4th annual Hop Seminar. This year our event takes place at the beautiful SRJC Shone Farm, just outside Forestville.

Tickets include coffee and breakfast snacks, a full catered lunch, beer tastings, cheese pairings, all-day access to education, and an afternoon tour of a new local hop yard with hands-on sessions in the field.

This years speakers include Mark Cabrera of California Beer Farms, Scott Bice of Capracopia Hops at Redwood Hill Farm, Nile Zacherle of Mad Fritz Beer, Ron Crane of Crane Ranch Hops, Don Winkle of SMT Law, Paul Hawley of Fogbelt Brewing Company, George Sellu program coordinator for Agribusiness at SRJC and PhD in Agricultural Science/Education from UC Davis, industry representatives from Hopsteiner, local hop farmers and more!

This year's seminar will focus on the business side of developing a small scale commercial hop farm, including topics on legal organization, accounting, and zoning, as well as a complete overview on the process of importing a Wolf harvester and the details of getting it ready for harvest. We will also be focusing on strategies to develop the connections between local hop suppliers and brewers, including techniques that brewers can implement in order to adapt recipes and use fresh whole-cone hops with their existing brewhouse.

Enjoy beer tastings from Russian River Brewing Company, Mad Fritz, Fogbelt Brewing Company, Seismic Brewing Company, Old Possum Brewing Company and more!

If you are thinking about growing hops, diversifying your current farming practices to include hops, or brewing craft beer, this seminar will have a lot to offer. It's also a great opportunity to meet many great people in the California craft brewing industry.

Join us for a full day of immersive focus on all things hop!
