Walking along a gritty, industrial street on our way back from picking up a twenty liter Weinballon (carboy), I noticed some of these lying on the ground. Wow, I thought, those really look like hops, but they can’t be– just growing along a fence separating S-Bahn train-tracks? But they were!

hopfenblüteWe have no idea what strain they are or how much alpha acid they have, but we will experimenta-brew a very simple ale to find out what their taste is like. Hopefully better than their smell, which is grassy and garlicky.
