Hop Pickers: The Musical!


With hop-picking season nigh, we thought you’d get a kick out of “Starcie Na Chmelu” (translation: “Hop Pickers”), a 1964 Czech comedy/musical about students who spend the summer picking hops in Czech fields. It’s got everything: Catchy tunes, hop field romance, hop field rivalry, perfectly choreographed hop-picker’s prom and three cool guys in wide-neck black tee-shirts playing guitar. We smell Saaz hops and Oscar/Tony remake potential all over this thing.
