Gorst Valley Hops / Bavarian Hops Trip w Dan Carey (2012)

In this episode of Wisconsin Foodie we travel from Sauk County, WI to Barvaria, Germany to profile one of our favorite ingredients – the Hop.

First we visit Gorst Valley Hop farm and meet up with James Altwies to get a tour of the farm and also some insight into the resurgence of local Wisconsin Hops.

Then we take a trip of a lifetime and tag along with Dan Carey of New Glarus Brewing as he travels to the Hallertau region of Bavaria Germany to source hops for some of their brews as well as meet the farmers responsible for growing the best Hops in the world.
