Inside an old oast house

Dave at work loves hops. His dedication is such that he took holiday from his work as a brewer to go hop picking.

The other day he brought in some old pictures of the oast house on the hop farm he works at:


Not that the pictures are that old,

A pocket of hops is being filled here
being taken in 2008. The building dates from 1911, that year again.

It's an amazing looking place, and as well as the hops they grow commercially they have a small garden of old varieties, some which Dave will be putting to good use on a home brew scale.
