Hop Stringin’ at Blue Mountain

Last July, Blue Mountain Brewery invited fans in for a day of hop picking. Now, the Nelson County brewery is tempting folks in for another work day.

From Nelson County Life Magazine:
Bring a pair of good yard scissors and help Blue Mountain Brewery string, trim and train their Cascade and Centennial hops! On Tuesday, April 26th · 3:00pm – 6:00pm Give them an hour of good work and they’ll hook you up with a “hop-hand” sandwich–carnivore or vegetarian style–and a side. They’ll be wrapping up the stringin’ by 6PM, so last check in time is precisely 5PM for this event. Co-owner and brewmaster Taylor Smack laughingly has a suggestion. “Basically, what we’re saying is fake a stomach ache at work sometime between 2:30 and 4:30 and get on out here for some good, beery, country fun!” Brewers Chad, Mitch, Matt and Taylor and Stan “the hop man” Driver will be out in the field working and chatting it up with all comers. Hope to see you!

(Seriously, don’t forget your scissors or a good box-knife or the like.)
Sounds a bit like a Tom Sawyer tale, but it will be good time for sure. But you better hurry, it's today!
