Did you know that Michigan ranks fourth in the United States for total acreage dedicated to hops? I suppose with all the craft breweries popping up, meeting Michigan's demand for these tasty little flowers shouldn't come as a surprise. And guess what... it's harvest season!

High Five Hops Farm

West Michigan Beer Tours is teaming up with the Moga family, the owners of High Five Hops Farm in Marshall, along with Dark Horse Brewing Co. and Territorial Brewing Co., for a Hop Harvest Beer Tour from 12pm-6pm, Saturday, August 25th.
