I've gotten nothing but stellar service and quality products from these guys. I'm glad business seems to be taking off so well for them. Wish I was local so I could use them as my LHBS.

I also have had great experience with Yakima valley.  I will be ordering from them again in the future. 

I actually got some citra from them too!

Been putting off checking on these folks.  Just ordered a pound of citra and half pound of warrior.  Thanks!

they do a very good job and are speedy with service. I like them - they've gotten about a third of my business for this year's haul/hoard.

Its great to see several online shops popping up with a dedication to hops for the homebrewer.

I was a little disappointed to see that their cheap mailing option is a priority mail flat letter.  I was disappointed when receiving hops that way from a different source once - some hops packaging had lost the seal and the pellets had been powdered a tad from mail handling.  So I paid $3 more for UPS even though they are located only 200 miles away from me.

I'm on the wrong side of the mountains to make them my LHBS. But live close enough to do a day trip there. But I wouldn't want to live in eastern Washington anyways, they have more seasons than just rain. Washingtonians will get it ;)

I'll have to check them out some time. 20 minutes up the freeway.

BTW Micah, ONLY reason I'd head to the Wet Side is to see the in-laws :)

Have a great weekend.
