The Ripple Steam Artisan Brewery has teamed up with Deal With It to set up the Deal Hop Farm Project.
Deal With It, the local green community group, launched Deal Hop Farm – a community hop-growing project – in January 2017. Now the voluntary group has grown to a farm of 130 sites in peoples’ gardens, allotments and community spaces, including English Heritage’s kitchen garden at Walmer Castle.
David Cliff, head brewer at Ripple Steam Brewery, said: “We are very supportive of this fantastic community hop-growing scheme and are looking forward to be brewing a special green hop beer using the Deal Hop Farm’s freshly harvested hops.”
