I was in Bavaria (southern Germany) two winters ago. It's the world
largest hop growing region. The trellis structure are indeed very
impressive, and they do use telephone poles, a lot of them.
Sadly, it was in February, so there was no hop growing on the structure.
But still, it's quite the sight.
