The Hoosier Craft Beer industry and culture is exploding. Now local farmers are thinking out of the box, and with the help of Purdue research, are being trained how to successfully and profitably grow hops in the corn belt. Creative/passionate brewers and increasingly discriminate consumers now supported by local farmers thinking outside the box and land grant college researchers providing the expertise and encouragement to help farmers go beyond their comfort zone. Chris Johnson owner/master brewer with People’s Brewing Company and Koh Knox, Owner, HopKnoXious Farm, talk about the growing partnership between local brewers and local farmers.
