Craft beverages straight from the source in Yakima Valley
[Via sfgate.com] While it’s easy to forget that winemaking, brewing and distilling all start with farming, in Washington’s Yakima Valley, the line from field to glass is a little shorter.
Stretching 70 miles through central Washington, Yakima Valley is the state’s first designated wine region and home to more than 80 wineries, several breweries, distilleries and a cidery using the fruits of the valley in their libations. Despite the boom in artisanal producers and growth in wine tourism, the region is still all about agriculture and remains a farming community at heart.
