The Fete at the Fort
The Fete at the Fort, in Prairie du Rocher. It was a beer tasting with many craft brewers represented and there were a number of groups of reinactors dressed in 18th century period garb. The were even firing the cannons. We are very thankful for the invitation to attend and for the opportunity to meet so many potential customers. We were able to sell a few hops and a few t-shirts and built up our mailing list. The best part was letting people take a few hops in the hands, crush them and discover for the first time the wonderful aroma of hops. The location was really impressive, as it is a fort built in 1720.
