Hops are extremely sensitive to length of day so the Solstices are a big deal to us at the Hop Garden. Summer Solstice tells the hop bines to start producing cones that we use in our Brewing. Winter Solstice is a time to Celebrate the Start of a new season leading us into Spring. Food and Beer Specials all Friday Night. Great Last Minute Christmas gifts at the Tap Room. Shirts, hats, stocking caps, jackets, pullovers and Gift Certificates all on Sale!
