Harvest has begun! All the work, worries, and hopes by PNW growers has led to this one, big final push to get all the hops off the bine and in the brewhouse.
Virgil Gamache Farms (named for Albert’s son) is operatedby third-generation family members Bernard and Steve and fourth-generation members Darren and Andy.
If you’ve been hunting for a delicate, fruity hop with an amazingly smooth mouthfeel, look no further than Cashmere. Cashmere hops were released in 2013 through Washington State University’s hop-breeding program. Daughter of female Cascade and male Norther Brewer, Cashmere is a public variety hop that can be grown in your own garden.
