An opportunity to join in with a day of hands-on hop picking in Kent. The hops picked on the day will be used by the Kernel Brewery (Bermondsey) to make a special green hop beer, which will be part of the 2016 Company Drink’s range.

Company Drinks was set up by international arts collective Myvillages in May 2014 as a way to revive this extraordinary urban-rural relationship and link it to the set up of a new community drinks enterprise. The plan for the new company was not only to pick, but to keep the crop, make the drinks and trade them directly with all profits feeding back into the collective endeavour, completing a whole cycle of production, trade and reinvestment.

Please note: The coach will leave from Dagenham at 09:00am on Friday 9 September, returning to Dagenham at approximately 18:00pm
