Calling all homebrewers – Cardiff Hops needs you!

Sam Holt stops by to talk about a Cardiff based homebrewing project that you should get involved in…


Cardiff Hops is a fun new project that started in March 2013 to get more people growing hops in the City. Following on from success with Brixton, Cardiff Hops will support interested parties to source, plant, grow, harvest and use the hops.

Cardiff Hops have teamed up with local micro brewery Pipes –  having turned 2013 crop into 100 litres of green hop ale, The Taff Temptress!

To join Cardiff Hops, join the Cardiff Hops Facebook group or send Sam Holt of EggSeeds an email,

Introductory hop packs are on sale for £20 for the first introductory pack, which contains all that is needed to get growing your hops off to a good start. Cardiff Hops will guide you through the whole process. Even if you don’t have much room, a 50cm container or a patch of land one foot in size can hold a dwarf hop plant (that grows only two-three metres in height). There’s a green hop ale revolution that has started in Cardiff – get on board!

Last day to sign up for orders March 9th 2014 – distribution and gathering, March 15th 2014.

The Cardiff Hops Map has just started and will be populated shortly, sharing pictures, stories and information.
