Hops

The first time I tried microbrewed beer I hated it, plain as that. I had a really hard time swallowing every single one sip of the 12 sampler arranged in front of me. That was almost 15 years ago. Now I am a fan, I have been for almost 10 years and during that time I have made a point of visiting at least one microbrewery of every city I stay or pass through. But that is not the best part; I live in Grand Rapids Michigan which (look it up) is beer city 2012 and 2013! and if that wasn't already too good to be true I live and work less than a mile away both ways from Founders Brewing Co listed as the 3rd best brewery in the world!

My favorite brew is the India Pale Ale, that's the one with tons of hops!

Hi Alynn,

I think this is a very fine image.

I've trawled through 100's of images of hops on the net and nothing has come near the strength and energy of your work.

Do you sell to the UK? I would like to buy one.

Also, I would like to use the image in a logo for a new, not-for-profit community hop growing project in the UK. Next year will be our first season. We would attribute your work, of course.

Do let me know how you feel about this use of your image.

Regards,

Robert.
