How Pleasanton Got Its Hops Back: In Edible East Bay

hops coverSome people know the East Bay town of Pleasanton once was a center of hop farming, but did you know a hundred years ago it supplied around 10% of our countries hops? I learned that and lot of other interesting nuggets along the way while writing about  how Pleasanton got its hops back in the latest issue of Edible East Bay. It’s the story of the death of hop farming a hundred years ago in Pleasanton and its small rebirth recently by some dedicated hop growers which I hope you’ll enjoy. And hey, they even put the hops on the cover in the form of graceful drawings from artist Susan Tibbons. It’s a good issue, hope you check it out!
