A Northwest Trip, Part Three

The final installment of our trip to hops production areas is the visit to the fields attached to Bale Breaker Brewing and then to the Yakima Hops Museum. First, pictures from Bale Breaker Brewing's Field 41 - a field that they named a beer after, and that is completely Cascade...

Our next stop at the American Hop Museum in Toppenish, WA was really a nice surprise. The museum tells the story of hops here in our country, but more importantly for the current surge in small hops growers in the US, it tells the story of scaling up from hand harvesting to full mechanization!
