What's that vine in Central City?

Next time you make it to Central City, take another look at the plants growing there. Did you know some of them are hops?  Yes, the same hops that go in those tasty beverages.  Westword's "Beer Man," Jonathan Shikes, just wrote an interesting blog about it: "Wild hops keep Central City's history alive." 
Dostal Alley owner Buddy Schmalz shows off the hops vines around his home.

Look for those vines as you walk around historic Central City, and maybe sample the results at Dostal Alley!
