Image by Jennifer Balcombe

Company: Two coachloads of former hop-pickers and hopping enthusiasts from Barking and Dagenham.

Movements: By coach from Dagenham Library to Little Scotney Farm, Lamberhurst, Kent.

Deals: The contribution to the coach trip was £3 per person and included a Hopping Quiz and free Company Drinks. The farmer Ian Strang hosted us for the day and let us take the hand-picked hops for free in return for the extra attention our project brings to British hop growing. A team of brewers from Kernel Brewery joined us for the day and took a carload of green hop straight back to the brewery. Evin Kernel supported Company Drinks by producing the beer for cost price.

RRP per pint: £3.50 – £5.00
