Upland Brewing shares a birthday with Mother Hubbard's Cupboard (AKA, The Hub), a local food pantry and community food resource center in Bloomington, Indiana. They both started in 1998. Upland is honoring The Hub with a special, wet-hopped beer called Mother's Harvest.
To make this New England-style, Hazy IPA you need fresh hops. I met a crew from Upland out at Indy High Bines, a hops farm just south of Indianapolis, for the harvest.
The next morning, the Upland brewers get to work extracting that fresh hops flavor while the cones are still bright green and fragrant.
