Hoptanica by Alena Botanica

The story of alena botanica started many moons ago with a girl, her camera, a plant identification book and an IPA. Alena, the creative force behind alena botanica, grew up on the East Coast. A love of travel, adventure, gardening & photography were instilled in her at a young age.

It was no surprise, the soul seeking artist moved to the West Coast after college in the early 90’s. Whilst hiking the Oregon coast, Alena discovered her plant geek. She also discovered this thing called craft beer. The love affair with hops is still not over.
