This is a hop plant. It is used as flavoring and natural preservative for brewing beer.
This one has been growing in my backyard cince I was a kid. It is about 25 years old. This thingy is absolutely amazing. When it breaks into bloom and heated by the sun it’s cones has a tantalazing beer aroma. Every year it is trying to seize more and more area of our yard, it climbs on it’s own dried branches that has left since last year. It also makes a good cover from summer heat for my cat :3

    The kits are really cheap, and if you already d rink, just save the bottles. all in al you shouldn’t spend more than 50 to 100 bucks for a kit and ingredients. The interweb and local stores have kits. Local co ops are also great places to get brewing supplies. I have yet to make beer as I don’t like having to do the second fermentation to make it all fizzy.
