Hops processor welcomes 'Dirty Jobs' film crew

The Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs — one of the few reasons to own a television — recently taped an episode at Hopunion in Yakima, Washington.

[Show host Mike] Rowe spent two days picking and inspecting hops, working the kilns that dry the hops and making bales, [Hopunion GM 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's airdate hasn't been set yet, but you can read the story at the Yakima Herald. (Thanks to the Real Beer Blog for the link!)
