Update, May 4, 2013: My Cascade hop plant is climbing up all six poles! See photos at the bottom of this post.
My three year old Cascade hops plant is thriving in my backyard. I’m looking forward to brewing a really nice IPA at the end of Summer or early Fall. And in the SF Bay Area we get a pretty late summer, hotter than most of us are usually prepared for. The perfect time to escape to the bottom of a tall glass of cold beer, full of flavor and homemade goodness.
