In tandem with our local Transition groups in Belsize and Kentish Town, we are developing our very own beer: Belsize beer, Kentish town keg, and Hampstead Heath hop. Our bit is to advise how to grow the hops! We are looking for as many of you as possible to join in with the fun and plant some hop plug plants next March. Hops, a perennial are so easy to grow, not only are they are great climber and have very beautiful white flowers, are also extremely beneficial to wildlife, but they can also be turned into beer!
All the hops we all grow will then be harvested in September and sent along to local brewery The Bull in N6, who have agreed to brew the beer. Fast forward to October 2014 – we will all be drinking our very own beer in our local pubs.
