In Miracle Brew, I went hop picking at Scotney Castle with Robert Wicks from Westerham Brewery. We saw some new, experimental hops on this boutique hop farm – and these hops are now in some new beers! Come and taste them with notes from Robert, and listen to me tell the story of hop growing and hop picking in Kent – and why you should never pick hops in summer wear.
