Kind of a cool story.
We have a fence in the yard by the alley that is , well ugly.
Asked the neighbor lady what to plant to cover it up. She says hops.
Hmm, well ok. Planted 3 hops plants and in a matter of 8 weeks they engulfed the fence.
A friend of mine is an award winning home brewer. This dude is good!
The second year the hops produced a million nice buds.
So i picked them late in the summer and gave my friend a paper grocery bag filled to the top.
I though he was going to hug me. So, my last name is Funk. i do a little design work and he asked if i would design the label for my beer.
Hell yeah! Took a photo of the actual fence with hop vine and my friend came up with the wording. I think they turned out great.
The beer is nothing short of awesome! Needless to say i am babying the vines ever since. This year the fence is covered again and sprouting dime sized buds. Can't wait!
