Hop Poles Arrive in Burien

A set of three 60-year-old cedar hop poles arrived at our pub in Burien today, compliments of the Virgil Gamache Farms of Toppenish WA.

Plans are to situate them amidst the "field of barley" on the 4th Ave. side of our building, string up some steel cable for support, and plant hop rhizomes there next year that will complete the "green wall" of basic brewing ingredients.

Many thanks to Darren and his family for bestowing upon us these historically valuable resources!
