Hop State New York

Hop State New York

Brewery Ommegang is helping to reenergize the New York State hop farming industry. Ommegang partnered with local farmers and developed Hopstate NY, an American pale ale using only state-grown hops. Ommegang brewer Eric Van Schoick discusses the collaboration with hop farmers and Cornell College to craft beers with hops from the brewery’s own back yard.
