Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Home of the Grand Yakima hop I imagine. Lazily savours memories of Mendocino beers.

Fab photos. If the trout are so good, any intention of fishing for a couple to barbecue ?

I'm not sure about the Grand Yakima hop, but hops are grown by the acre just southwest of Portland, OR.

I don't recognize Mendocino beer, either; but, if you ever get out this way, I'll take you to the Walking Man for an array of some of the best beers and ales that I've ever found. They are all "craft" brews, and the brewer/proprietor wins at least one top-of-class award every year for the Pacific NW region. His Scotch Ale is only available sporadically, but it is the ale equivalent of Chateau Rothschild (I forget the rest of the label) in its best vintages.

As to the trout - for the best eating, catch the brookies and browns from 20 to 40 cm in the streams.

Well, that sounds like a good date. But your next president is gonna have to do something about DHS/Immigration before I venture out west.

I always wanted to go to the Denver beer fest in october. that'd be the biggest draw for me.

Mendocino is a brewery in N Cali. I'm a big fan but I don't see them as much as I used to. It's all Sierra Nevada and Anchor Steam these days, nothing wrong with 'em but we don't get the interesting ones.
