It was almost a full house of Hoppers in the Hangar last night for a post-harvest celebration!
As a "thank you" for helping bring home the harvest, Matthew extended an invitation to an evening of beer alongside a bite to eat.
There were plenty of purple Hoppers shirts in evidence...
...and the 2023 Hoppers tankards seemed to make the more special.
The pizzas and pasties helped the beer go down a treat.
After the speech from Matthew, thanking the Hoppers for all their hard work and support, and a few words from Miles, it was time to raise a glass...
...before Matthew broke the news that winter preparation in the hop garden would start again next month!
The Hoppers were happy to pose for photos as we'll be creating a Wall of Fame in the Tap soon.
Well done to Matthew and the Hoppers for a job well done in bringing in the 2023 harvest!
