Most of us know that Hops (the International Herb Association Herb of the Year™)  are used in beer making by large and small breweries- local and family owned. They are the flowers of the Hop plant (Humulus Lupulus). WRHS members had the pleasure of attending their first Unit Meeting of the year by visiting the small family owned brewery- Sibling Revelry Brewing, in Westlake, OH. We sampled a couple of tasty herbal beers -Lavender Wit and a beer that used hops grown in our area. Stop by this summer to see Hops vigorously growing the the Dye section of the Western Reserve Herb Society Garden.
