Happy 6th Anniversary to High Hops Brewery! Venue Spotlight
|Taggart & Silas, High Hops Greenhouse Stage, 2012ish.|
High Hops started as a tiny home brew supply store tucked into the corner of the Windsor Gardener nursery and garden store. Dr. Pat Weakland, a local dentist, and his son Zach were passionate home brewers who grew their love for brewing into one of the premiere craft breweries in the country. In the process, High Hops put Windsor on the map as a destination with live music every weekend, and a wonderful place to spend and afternoon and evening with amazing beer, and an inviting atmosphere.

Zach Weakland oversees the operation with the help of his wife Katie, and Dr. Pat. Zach has become a world class brewer, and Dr. Pat's double IPA is an award winning small batch beer that his dad continues to tweak. They've built a burgeoning beverage empire with a small, but dedicated and hard working staff. They continue to grow hops on the adjacent property and on a couple of tracts in the near distance.

This weekend's celebration is well deserved, and I thank the Weakland family for all their support over the years, and I wish them all continued success. Please join me:
