Great day and great food. Good luck to the relishbbq team in the World championship, from what I saw yesterday - I expect you will be wearing  the gold medal around your neck at the next annual hop harvest day. Looking forward to it already.

Twas a very enjoyable day out. Thanks for the great company and tasting some great brews to sample.

I found two garbage bags of hops left in the kitchen. Did someone forget them or did you leave them for me. Unfortunately I wont get time to use or dry them and have a freezer drawer full of them already, them so who wants them - going free ?

I used all mine in a brew today. If someone forgot them and needs them brought to limerick, I could collect them and bring them in. If they are spare and you re going to throw them out I d love to take them off your hands and try drying them and using again. The brew today smelt great with those fresh hops. I could call around 5 30 on way home from work tomorrow if that suited you Brett.

Cool. Lovely day for a brew. If no one claims them, then that time should be OK.

After a pint and some catching up, here we are starting with the Cascades because, well, they've grown all over the picking bench.  8)

Thanks for the extra hops Brett. Who needs a spare room when you can have a hop drying room. There was more than I thought to be fair.

Thanks again for the day Brett. Great food, beer and hops!
