"Hey, is that mushroom edible?"
"Every mushroom is edible at least once."

Washington State is a wonderful area for mushroom hunting.

If you didn't know or were aware, Yakima has a growing mushroom society full of mushroom enthusiasts who love to collect, gather, showcase, and, of course, eat.

If you've ever been curious or are maybe looking for a new hobby to get you out of the house, the Yakima Valley Mushroom Society is holding a free show for all to attend. And, yes, that's not a typo, I said it was 100% free to show up, hang out, and chat with mushroom enthusiasts.

Join the Yakima Valley Mushroom Society at the Arboretum on Sunday, October 22nd from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

You'll see mushroom exhibits, displays, examples of which ones are edible and poisonous or even valueless. Over 100 kinds of mushrooms will be featured.

You're also encouraged to bring your own mushrooms if you had questions. Maybe you have some weird ones growing in your backyard and didn't quite know what they are. Bring them to the mushroom experts who can help you identify them.

There will also be fun gifts and guides for sale.

Sounds like a super fun time and perhaps a new hobby you can get into right here in your own backyard with a lot of members already willing to help you on your new journey on being a mushroom expert.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
