Flying Dog Plants a Hop Garden

Someone ordered a beer garden?

Not being content with the local hops from now-pioneering Stillpoint Farms on the other side of town, Flying Dog in Frederick planted their own Cascade and Chinook hop vines at their brewery on Tuesday, and of course, had to make a musical video of the process:
If typical growing cycles are any indication, it'll be next year before they get any seriously usable quantities of hops, and even then they should only produce enough for special applications and dry-hopping, not mass production.
