I for one like to hear about alternative ventures in the hop yard world,
and the fact that the craft market is driving new hop experiments and potential varieties that may infuse new aromas and flavors into the scene is exciting. (although I agree with Denny that the examples they provided are lame and not appealing).
But I found the tone to be completely douchey with respect to Yakima. What's up with that? Why bash Yakima?
Umm...Oregon Pride Man. It has been a full on Yak Attack since '52 man.
What are you from Washington or something?
Geez, have to get a new look at these emoticons.
