Flame Game – The Fire House

They say teamwork makes the dream work, but only if you’ve got the right players on the field.

When owner Ryan Bean left professional baseball, where he played both overseas and in the MLB for the San Francisco Giants organization, it was to pursue a place in the world of legal Cannabis. Having spent time at Harmony Farms, he eventually learned how this game is played. And when recreational Cannabis was announced, he was fortunate enough to win a license – allowing him to return to his roots and open this shop in the sweet community of Ellensburg, where he split his childhood with the city of Olympia.

Family Operated

They say teamwork makes the dream work, but only if you’ve got the right players on the field. And when it comes to working with people who want to see you win the game, no one has your back more than your own mother. So, with mom and younger brother Dayne in the manager’s box, there’s no shortage of home runs. 

Childhood Dreams

As with lots of kids growing up, Ryan wanted to be a fireman – which is no surprise with so much flame in here. And they’ve also got the gas … literally! The shop is sandwiched between a 76 and a Chevron station right off the I-90, so you’re sure to have your pot and petrol needs covered.

About Mike Ricker

The first time Ricker smoked weed was at a Santana concert at the age of 12. He then followed in his footsteps as an award-winning radio personality who became notorious for offering a stage for bong toking listeners in 9 different markets over 20 years. In 2016, the Cannabis industry came calling and the rest is history.
