FWIW, I'm pretty sure Freshops doesn't dig the rhizomes.  AFAIK, Dave doesn't grow any hops at all.  But he's near the major hop growers and gets everything very fresh.

Believe it or not, "they do" and "he does".  I don't know were he gets all the energy to keep up with all that he's got going, but I want to find that place!  Might have something to do with his ginseng porter though?

Thanks for the correction, Bob!  Obviously, I didn't realize that!  Dave does seem to have superhuman energy...but that still won't get me to drink that porter!  ;)

Hahaha, I know what you mean.  The Bourbon BBL Porter is quite a different story though.

All the LHBS in the Portland area will have some for sale in the spring. Craigs List will have some listings around here too. In fact I will be posting to sell one or two of my Cascade plants, not just the rhizomes come spring 2014. I can also dig out some of my Centennial.
If you are interested in those types, just let me know. You might be able to pick them up for a couple of bottles of your last batch.  ;)
