Hops & The Gov't
Hob Knob took it's first real step towards becoming an official brewery today. We applied for a 'Certificate of assumed name for a sole proprietorship'. Basically, we registered our name so that no one else can use it! So 'Hob Knob Brewery' is now officially my DBA title. Next up is purchasing a brewer's bond, and filing a 'brewer's notice' with the ttb (that's the 'Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau').
The hops garden is beginning to take root! I'm growing a few different varieties. My personal favorite is the fuggles variety. I'm also growing cascades, goldings, zues, and the jumbo nugget hops you see to the left!
