Where do your hops come from?

The vast majority of our hops are grown within a two hour drive from the brewery, in the Yakima Valley of central Washington and the Willamette Valley just south of Portland here in Oregon. Our location affords us the opportunity for regular contact with the hop growers, and we make a point of traveling to the central storehouses in Yakima at harvest time (usually September) to “rub” hop flowers from different field lots in search of the best aromas. We use lots of hops in our beers, so this is important!
