(Independence, OR)  --  Willamette Valley hop growers say they're having a good harvest this season.  Farmers say winter flooding and hot summer temperatures have driven the bounty.  Growers are also benefiting from the nationwide growth in the number of craft breweries over the past decade.  The national average price for hops has doubled since 2004.
