Southern Appalachian Hops Guild Growers

The EchoView Hops yard is now three years old. We have about 1800 bines on 1.75 acres. The area we use to grow the bines was formerly in tobacco.We have improved the soil and installed our trellis system over the that period. We are learning as we grow but we remain very excited about our hops and we will have our first marketable crop of ultra high quality hops this harvest. The varieties we grow are the following: Centennial, Chinook, Magnum, Brewers gold, Sterling, Haltauer, Tetnang,Perle and Mt hood. We are in the process of building an oast and are developing a processing plan which will allow us to take the hops from the bine to the brewery.
