Kent Falls Brewing Company, Kent, Connecticut
Brewers Gold, Chinook, Cascade, Michigan Copper, and Bitter Gold are the five hops varieties that contribute to the magic of this Litchfield County brewery. With a strong devotion to the land (the farm has been in continuous operations for over 250 years), this brewery cares deeply about sustainability and brewery-supported agriculture, which you can see in their spent-grain recycling and solar hot water system, among other things. Come hop harvest time (and a simultaneous wet hop brew and pig roast), volunteers pick through all 1.5 acres of hops in a day to give back to this community stronghold. Their tasting room and farm store opened this spring.
