Hopmeadow is a name from history that has become so fused with our community it's almost overlooked. There was a time when our land was used to grow foods out of necessity. Tracts of meadow and fertile soil along the Farmington River produce corn, rye, wheat, oats, barley, and hops. Grains were ground at the local gristmill, while hops were hand-harvested and dried in the sun.
Beer was made and served in local taverns catering to weary travelers. At some point in history, there was a fire at the Simsbury town hall and many records were destroyed. We will never know the exact truth about where the name Hopmeadow came from, but come on… you know these guys were making great beer!
