The end of August begins peak hop season, and farms across Michigan will soon begin harvesting their crops for distribution to breweries all over the state and the world. Get up and close with one of the key ingredients in beer at this year's Hop Harvest Beer Tour. The tour will bring you to visit the Moga family at High Five Hops Farm in Marshall, a major supplier to Dark Horse Brewing Company. Sip some beer, tour the farm, and hear about the history of the Moga family's farm and it's role in Michigan beer making. But that's not the only stop.
