Here and there: Hops & Iron Hill

Hops ... First round picked, more to go.

This shot of the Centennials was taken a week or so before picking, which was done July 12th and yielded just over a half pound, predominantly from one hill. Nice crisp grapefruit aroma with a hint of pine.

A second round happens in about 10 days.

And ... Iron Hill officially opened Monday night in Maple Shade to brisk business. Best of luck to New Jersey's first new brewer in a decade, a place that will surely become an oasis in South Jersey.

Pictured below is co-owner Kevin Finn toasting the opening with Maple Shade Mayor James Fletcher. Follow this link for some observerations on Iron Hill by John Holl of newjerseynewsroom.com. Video of the opening will be up soon.
