Hops Coming to the Northeast?

Just got an article from my mom.. Apparently hop farms are attempting to come to where I was born and raised in the Hudson Valley, New York...

This is an interesting proposition if you ask me. Don't get me wrong, I think that's absolutely
fantastic. But so many hops come from just a few regions, Pacific Northwest, England, and Germany. Mainly because they have just the right mixture of humidity, porous soil, cold winters, warm summers, and daylight. Not saying that New York doesn't have those things, but it seems to me that hops from a new region would be bread as a whole new strain of hops. Hops are known to come from very specific parts of the world. Cascade is an American hop from the northwest, Fuggles from England, Tettnanger from Germany. It makes me wonder what they are planning on growing. Well more power to them!! I hope to hear more information about this production in the near future!

It's amazing how time flies. Soon I will have time to brew again, but between work and coaching track things have been crazy. What little  time I get I spend relaxing from the hectic week with my wife. Soon though it all comes to a head with my Ireland trip at the end of April. Afterwards my coaching is finished. I can start brewing and vaulting myself again. Time to do some things I haven't gotten around to in some time.

Random question. I was checking out my traffic sources on my google analytics. Why are some of my traffic sources from Russian porn sites???
