The D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation this Wednesday is scheduled to have a workshop that will cover growing and harvesting hops in the D.C. area, as well as properly storing them for later brewing.

The class is set to take place in the Raymond Recreation Center and Computer Lab (3725 10th St. NW) from 6:30-8:30 pm.

Dana McCoskey, a local biologist and home brewer, is slated to provide participants with basic information on brewing and help them explore the effects of different hops on beer.

The workshop also is expected to include a discussion of beer recipes.

The class is free for D.C. residents.
