Hops Harvest

Last week, the Wall Street Journal ran a story about brewers who make seasonal, limited edition beers using fresh (as opposed to dry) hops. I had great intentions of commenting on the story at the time, but let's face it: Right now "blogging" is not at the top of my to-do list.

Anyway, last Monday the fabulous Jay Brooks, of the equally fabulous Brookston Beer Blog, helped out with the hops harvest for two breweries in his neighborhood (Russian River and Moonlight). He's posted some fantastic pictures and terrific commentary to go with them. Check it out at his blog. It's the entry for August 29, 2006.
