Growing hops in central and western Nebraska

August 19, 2016

The sixth annual Best of the West Beer and Wine Fest will be held Saturday, Aug. 20, in downtown Scottsbluff. The event will serve a variety of wine and beer, including a Nebraska beer called Kinkader from Broken Bow. As most everyone knows, beer comes from hops and while Nebraska may have vineyards across the state, hops are still pretty much an eastern Nebraska crop. I talked with Kinkader Production Manager Nate Bell about what kind of environment it takes to grow hops.
