Lets hear it for the American Green!
This is a video from the guys at The Lost Abbey/Port Brewing San Marcos California, the video details the magical time of year in the Yakima Valley, the hop harvest.
I was literally salivating hearing them talk about walking the through the bines of of plump ripe Simcoe & Chinook cones.
It's definatley on my itinery to visit the Yakima Valley during hop harvest some day, something I think every brewer who appreciates American hops should do.
This video has just ramped up the excitement a few notches as the anticipation of the new season US hops starts to rise. Kevin will not like this video, but I don't give a f**k.
The world would be a darker place without US green, FACT.
Watch & drool...
