Love the smell of fresh-cut hops. It is amazing to me how they even harvest them. It actually looks kind of hard. But when they get it done, the freshly cut hops smell amazing! And when they go into beer, it smells even better.

The Fresh Hop Ale Fest is coming up very soon -- Sept. 30 at Millennium Plaza in Downtown Yakima. There will be over 50 different breweries on hand. I'm looking forward to going for the taste and the smell. Tickets are also very inexpensive. There's going to be live music, amazing food, and those yummy hops.

All you have to do is check in at the 4th Street Theatre and then it is time to party!
