Field Research: Touring Crosby Hop Farm

Author: Jason Harris
September 17, 2016


Last Friday evening, I had the opportunity to join my friends from Vagabond Brewing (thanks AJ and Dean!) at a private mini-brewfest at Crosby Hop Farm in Woodburn, Oregon.

It was simply fascinating to tour Crosby Hop Farm and see the entire process of how hops are brought in by truck from the fields, dried, processed, and ultimately prepared for brewers as either whole-leaf hops or pellets.

In fact, I learned that Crosby is the only hops farm in Oregon that has an on-site pellet processing capability.

After our tour, we were able to sample from breweries in the area including Vangard Brewing in Wilsonville, Silver Moon in Bend, Santiam here in Salem. It was amazing to meet all these amazing brewers and hear about their craft, inspirations and more.
