    Hi all,

    A homebrewer friend of mine is interested in heading over to the Yakima area to check out hop farms, pick up hops, have a few beers, etc.

    Anyone took any trips over to do something similar? Are there tours? Particular farms that are easy to check out?

    Also, harvest is probably happening soon? Don't want to go too late...best time to go?

    ?

    Thanks for any tips.

    I would suggest asking the fine folks at Hopunion that question. They might know if some of their growers are more amenable to visitors than others.

    I just got the USDA crop estimate for Yakima hops in my email today. They are estimating the first day of the 2012 hop harvest to be August 26th.
