This is a video from the guys at The Lost Abbey (http://www.lostabbey.com/)/Port Brewing (http://www.portbrewing.com/) San Marcos California, the video details the magical time of year in the Yakima Valley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yakima_Valley_AVA), the hop harvest.

I was literally salivating hearing them talk about walking the through the bines of of plump ripe Simcoe & Chinook cones.

It's definatley on my itinery to visit the Yakima Valley during hop harvest some day, something I think every brewer who appreciates American hops should do.

This video has just ramped up the excitement a few notches as the anticipation of the new season US hops starts to rise. Kevin (http://raisethebeerbar.blogspot.com/2011/02/camra-campaign-for-real-alienation.html) will not like this video, but I don't give a f**k.

The world would be a darker place without US green, FACT.
