At Readington Brewery & Hop Farm we aren’t just beer lovers and brewers, we are also farmers. Founded in 2019, our hop farm is one of the largest hop farms in the State of New Jersey. Our roughly 3-acre hop yard features over 735 hop plants supported by over 126 telephone poles with steel cable supports. We grow the following hop varietals: Cascade, Centennial, Magnum, Sarachi Ace, Willamette, CTZ (Zeus), Northern Brewer and Michigan Copper™. We are especially excited about our Michigan Cooper™. Michigan Cooper™ is a new varietal of hop developed by our friends at Great Lake Hops. We are the only ones in the Northeast growing it, and assuming it performs as expected we look forward to creating some exciting new beers that embody the uniqueness of this hop and our terroir. Our hop harvest occurs in August each year and is a fun event for the whole family!
In addition to hops our 25-acre farm also grows wheat, barley, flowers, peaches and other assorted fruits and vegetables. We love to use our farm fresh ingredients in our beers whenever possible. You are welcome to join us for a guided tour of our farm (click here for farm tour schedule) or you can explore the farm on your own. It is a lovely place to enjoy a beautiful day with family and friends. Depending on the season you might be able to leave with some farm fresh produce too. Our farm also features an outdoor pavilion which is available for private parties and events. Please contact our special events coordinator for more information.
