The hop yard was established in 2013 in Clarendon, Quebec. We became motivated in the growing of hops by having a passion for craft beer and in witnessing others in our area doing likewise. As such, we joined them in becoming a member of the Pontiac Hops Coop.
Our name has several multiple meanings relating to the historical and geographical aspects of the hop yard. The yard is situated between Shawville, an area settled by Anglo immigrants and Ladysmith an area settled by Prussian immigrants both from the mid to late 19th century. Our name also recognizes the significance that the English and German culture’s had not only in the development of beer, but also in the growing and utilization of hops in beer. And finally our name, Anglo- Prussian, best exemplifies the ancestral background of its owners.
Presently, we are growing four varieties of hops. They being: Cascade, Northern Brewer, Willamette and Tettnanger with plans of doubling our field size in 2017.
We grow all our hops by incorporating Biodynamics, the life force in all creation, being conscience of the earth and our environment.
