Fresh Hops Are Coming! Fresh Hops Are HERE!

Hops, Wonderful Hops!
Fresh hop season is upon us! I know because I have a whole bunch of beautiful homegrown hops to harvest this weekend. I've got Cascade, Willamette and Zeus Hops, all looking pretty spectacular.  Of course, looks don't mean much if you can't brew worth a crap. Urp, sorry, but I'm going to try my best.

Gratefully, folks won't have to rely on my brewing skills in order to partake of some tasty, fresh hop beers. Soon, we'll have fresh hop festivals galore to attend. (I must say, I'm a little worried about the Hood River Hops Fest. It's always one of my favorites. What with the fires in the Gorge and the closing of I-84, I imagine there will be an impact.)

Fresh hop beers will be on tap in breweries across the city very soon. There are also a few Portland breweries with fresh hop beers ALREADY on tap. I made a few phone calls so you don't have to! You're welcome! Just raise a pint to me when you're passing this delicious stuff through your lips and over your quivering taste buds.
