Hop Federation Brewery

I first visited the Hop Federation Brewery in 2014, outside of Motueka in the little town of Riwaka. Even downed a few cold ones in addition to the tastings. Since then, and thanks to daughter Rachel, I have tasted quite a few more IPAs. I can't say I'm a connoisseur, but I think this place does some marvelous and innovative brews.  Sorry, Rachel, I drank the excellent Rakau and the Double IPA, so there's nothing left to bring home.

Wes is not an IPA fan. David has grown some hops, and every now and then, we see some growing in flower beds as we walk around Chicago. I had never seen them growing before.

I am just seeing this now! This looks like a very cool brewery. Don't worry, you do not need to bring me a beer from across the ocean! I'll get to New Zealand soon enough.
