Blue Mountain Brewery named one of the best farm-to-pint breweries

newspaperBlue Mountain Brewery has been named one of 10 awesome farm-to-pint breweries by FarmFlavor.com, a national website that highlights the best in recipes, cooking tips, farmers guides and more that follow food’s journey from the farm to your kitchen.

For the inaugural list of some of the best farm-to-pint breweries across the United States, FarmFlavor.com editors looked at breweries with a commitment to source the best local ingredients for their beers while also supporting their local agriculture industry.

“You won’t get very far in today’s agriculture world without hearing the term ‘farm-to-fork’ because eating local has become an important part of both the local restaurant scene as well as the local economy,” says Rachel Bertone, FarmFlavor.com spokesman. “We took this concept a step further by looking at breweries and eateries that encourage patrons to ‘drink local’ as well.”

During growing season, patrons of Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton can literally see what they drink since both its breweries are surrounded by the company’s own hops fields. Blue Mountain’s Pacific Northwest Cascade variety and Pacific Northwest Centennial variety of hops are the star of their brews, but Blue Mountain expands their local commitment to food as well, serving a menu at the brewery with ingredients from more than a dozen local farms.
