Photos: Inside Two Roads’ Hop Harvest
On a sunny August day, founders, employees and friends of Two Roads Brewing Co. harvested hops in the thriving hop yard behind the brewery in Stratford, Connecticut. Centennial and Cascade hops were stripped by hand from the bine for a wet-hopped ale that master brewer Phil Markowski brewed the following day. Relief from the heat and hard work was not far away, as the Hop Yard Shed Bar outpost sits just across the grassy lawn.
