Hop Rhizome Propagation with Gayle Goschie

The April meeting will feature a very special visit from Gayle Goschie of Goschie FarmsThis is going to be a rare "hopportunity" to speak to a pioneer in the field of hop cultivation. She'll teach us about rhizome propagation, planting, and how to care for your hop bines (not vine, bine. What's a bine? ---> http://bit.ly/fj8GBB). She'll be happy to answer any and all questions posed, so get them ready!

Goschie Farms, family-owned and based in Silverton, Oregon, has been growing hops for over 100 years and Gayle is the figurative and literal heart of their operation. Five years ago, Gayle took on the challenge of growing organic hops, against great odds and at high financial risk, yet the farm is still going strong. They are the first "Certified Salmon Safe" hop farm in the US, and they are notable for their commitment to sustainable farming, an idea which Gayle championed and insists on.

It will be an honor to have her visit us, so don't miss out on the chance to speak to one of Oregon's premiere hop farmers!

All active members and guests are invited to attend.

Held at:

F H Steinbart Co
234 Southeast 12th Avenue
Portland, OR 97214

Education topic: Open Forum!  A panel of experienced and successful OBC homebrewers will answer questions from the group in an open Q&A informal format.  Think of it as chatting about making better beer with 100 of your closest friends.

Food: We would like to have food available at this meeting, so we encourage our members to bring some food items for everyone to share. Don't forget that bringing food to share at a meeting can earn not only Karma points but also raffle tickets.  Meagan will be holding a raffle for all members that bring food items.  She will be giving away a $25 gift card and more. On top of all of this, our 2018 Burgermeister, Meagan Thompson would love the support!

Beer:  Beer is a very important part of these meetings. We wouldn’t have beer without our members. Growler fills and bottled homebrew  are highly encouraged as this is a great way to share your beer with your peers and get honest and immediate feedback. If you bring a keg of your homebrew to a meeting you will earn Karma Points! Keep in mind that we may have beer planned for the Education topic or beer from other club specific brewing events. So that we can balance the amount of beer available at our meetings It is very helpful for us to plan in advance of the meeting. If you would like to request a tap spot for your keg, or if you plan to pour a keg via a picnic tap, please let us know in advance! We ask that if you do bring a keg, that you give a brief talk to the members about the details of your beer . Please contact Club VP to see if there is room for your keg @ Brian.haslip@oregonbrewcrew.org

Please support your club and plan on attending! Guests and visitors are welcome at all "In" Meetings!
