    (surprisingly) I couldn't find a thread on this (pogo me if wrong):
    city farmers bring you the Brixton Beer Company

    Any green handed urbanites can help, there is an update on the project from earlier in February.

    What do you all think?

    It's a great project.

    I'd like to get involved but I have a hand of doom for anything that grows rather than a green hand so I think I'll abstain; which is a shame as there sure is a lot of available space for growing in the GT which the last lot of people seem to have abandoned too.

    Brixton needs a brewery. I know of only one, a micro-brewery thing at the Florence, which is really Herne Hill.

    Can't get the poxy link to work right now, but that's supposed to be http://www.florencehernehill.com I think ... maybe that URL is out of date? :confused:

    Has anyone been contacted by CF re. the growing kit, I replied to their initial post back in Nov 2011 but haven't been contacted since, am keen to join in the growing fun.

    Sounds like a great idea. I have a mate who grows hops in his back garden and makes his own beer with them. They do grow very tall though

    This is Helen from City Farmers (hello!) and we'll be growing a dwarf variety, so it'll reach 6ft ish.

    We still have a few hops kits left that we'll be distributing on Saturday afternoon at the Stockwell Green Fair so do get in touch if you fancy growing. Our partner brewer will be the Peter at the Florence. He took over about a year ago and is starting to brew his own recipes - he really knows his stuff!

    I'm drafting the final information email to send out this afternoon, with slightly dodgy video and everything.

    We're very excited! Here's a great article about the project and urban hops in general by Rob Hopkins who started the Transition Movement. transitionculture.org/2012/02/20/when-the-hop-fields-come-to-town/
