Griggs is our sweet, well lived/loved neighbor who reached out to see if we could make use of some beautiful Cascade hops. He grows these every year and usually sends them to his son to brew with. Fortunately for us, his son was unable to use them this year and he reached out to us. These storied hops have made their way into a now famous Fremont brewery’s first fresh hop beer many years ago. “A little brewery down the street” as Griggs likes to say with a twinkle in his eye.
