Amazing Prosser Businesses
| Every year I try to stay a few days at Wine Country RV Park. I live only 50 miles away but it gets me away from the house and all the demands and distractions that come with home ownership. |
Last week I called on many of our advertisers in Prosser while staying at the park. Most small towns struggle to maintain the most basic businesses but Prosser has truly grown into a destination resort town. After this visit I decided that each month I would talk about a few of the businesses that I visited. Most months I dwell so heavily on the wineries that few of the other outstanding businesses in Prosser get their due attention.
|Marilyn Dalstra's |
One of the truly delightful stops was at the Sewing Basket and The Quilted Country Inn owned by Marilyn Dalstra. In a small old house Marilyn has organized over 3500 bolts of beautiful material. She ships out to Quilters all over the country. Her B&B which sits on the Yakima River is packed with Quilter on retreat. When you are in Prosser, this is a great place to see many amazing quilts.
|Words of Wisdom from Brew Master Larry at Whitstran Brewery|
Prosser is well known for its wineries but did you know that we also have two micro breweries. If you need to cool off on one of our hot summer days there is nothing better than an ice cold beer. Not only does Whistran Brewery have a wide selection of beers but it also has a great food menu to compliment their selection of tasty beers. Read Brew Master Larrys advise to help out with our current gas issues.
|Horse Heaven Hills Brewery|
Horse Heaven Hills Brewery has flights for tasting their beers to allow you to select your favorite before you buy your pint. You can sit and watch Brew Master Gary work his miracles as he turns grains, yeast and hops into some truly enjoyable beers.
