    Dirty Job

    Hop picking to be featured on TV show

    The hit cable television show Dirty Jobs, where host Mike Rowe and his crew are “shown performing difficult, strange, and/or messy occupational duties alongside the typical employees” was in the Yakima Valley last week shooting an episode during the hop harvest.

    According to the Yakima Herald-Republic, “Rowe spent two days picking and inspecting hops, working the kilns that dry the hops and making bales,” HopUnion owner Ralph Olson said. In addition to visiting HopUnion, which provides hop leaves, pellets, extracts and oils to the craft brewery industry, Rowe worked in the fields at Loftus Ranches in Moxee.” The episode is expected to air sometime this winter, though no date has been set.

    Yup, it was Long Trail

    Yes, it was Long Trail in Vermont. I was one of the brewers there and had Mike clean the spent yeast tank. We had a lot of fun thinking of all sorts of fun, dirty, hot things to do. He also got to scrape the yeast press and clean the lauter tun, without cooling it down I might add.

    It was a lot of fun and the whole crew is really down to earth and friendly. Have fun!
