Tama County Women, Land & Legacy hops event coming to Traer March 12

March 3, 2019
Special to The News-Herald , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

No, it's not a crop new to Iowa, but hop production in our state is definitely seeing a resurgence. With over 70 breweries now operating in our state, making economic impact of over $100 million and creating more than 1,500 jobs, ag producers are sitting up and taking notice, starting to see hops as a cash crop.

Join Tama County Women, Land & Legacy and Farmers Savings Bank & Trust, Traer for "Hops in Iowa: From the Field to the Tap." This event will be held on Tuesday, March 12 at the Traer Public Library Community Room, 531 Second Street in Traer. Dessert and registration will begin at 6:30 p.m. with the event following at 7 p.m.

Keri Byrum's family has taken seven acres of its farm near Cedar Falls and produces five varieties of hops as Cedar Falls Hops Company.

Nick Newgard of Second State Brewing in downtown Cedar Falls will share what happens with hops after they leave the farm and how different hop varieties impact brewers' products.

An RSVP is preferred by March 11 by phoning Mel at 641-484-2702, ext. 305 or by emailing her at:
