Last month I had an incredible opportunity, and I’m happy to finally be able to share my experiences with you now. All About Beer Magazine has published my piece on this year’s Hop Harvest, told through my travels in Oregon and Yakima County, Washington with the amazing Brewmasters Chuck Silva (Formally of Green Flash, now starting Silva Brewing) and Alpine Beer Co‘s Pat McIlhenney. Over 77% of American hops are grown in the Yakima Valley, and as an embedded journalist with Silva and McIlhenney I was able to understand where our hops come from; starting from the field all the way to the pint glass. I toured hop farms owned by family’s five generations old and got a rare look at the process of selecting hop varietals for Green Flash and Alpine. I invite you, through my words and images, to share in the experience with an incredible online piece put together by the team at All About Beer Magazine. Thanks to the editorial staff for working so hard on this project, and thanks to Chuck and Pat for a once in a lifetime experience. Cheers!
