Deschutes Brewery in Oregon posted this pic on its Flickr account. Each year, Deschutes makes a "hop trip" to get ingredients to brew its Hop Trip fresh hop pale ale, out in the fall.
Incidentally, Ska Brewing did something similar last fall.
Most American hops come from the Pacific Northwest. It's funny to hear hops named after places I've tromped around - Cascade, Chinook, Mt. Hood, Willamette.
