Growing the hops & barley on our estate farm
Every spring Farmery plants a crop of malt barley and prepares the hopyard, as hops are a perennial plant. Hops grow vigorously in the summer and can grow as fast as a foot a day. Manitoba grows excellent malt barley and Farmery has proven that hops can grow very well here as well!
Harvesting the hops & barley
Harvesting in Manitoba typically happens around August for barley, and late August-early September for hops. Harvest time is very exciting for Farmery because of the beer we can make from the barley and hops we harvested!
Extracting the essential oils
We not only harvest hops, but we also extract essential hop oil from our hops using a steam process. Hop oil retains all the delicious flavor aromas of hops--from citrus to pine to spicy depending on the variety--without the bitterness. Hop oil is incredibly potent and it takes very little to infuse our Endless Summer Lager during the brewing and infusion stage.
Brewing the Endless Summer Lager
Using our ingredients of barley and hops to brew beer: that is what makes Farmery Estate Brewery so unique. And infusing our beer with that subtle touch of freshly-extracted hop oil results in our Endless Summer Lager—it is a very unique beer, with that special flavour that comes from premium farm-grown ingredients!
Enjoy it all year round, and dream of summer!
