A fifth-generation farmer is putting on the inaugural Montana Fresh Hop Festival, a celebration of craft beer and all the work that goes into creating it.

“The whole goal is to be connecting people with the agriculture behind beer,” said Jake TeSelle, 26. TeSelle is the founder of Crooked Yard Hops, a local farm dedicated to supplying local and state breweries with freshly harvested hops.

The Montana Fresh Hop Festival will feature between 15 and 20 Montana breweries, all offering attendees tastes of the brews created from Crooked Yard hops.
