We made it to Yakima for hop harvest and selection. About 75% of the countries hops are grown in the Yakima valley. It’s always nice to connect with the growers, processors, and other brewers, all for the love of hops.
In the course of two days, we visited about ten different growers, processors, and farmers in the area, including Perrault Farms, Loftus Ranches, YCH Hops, Haas, Roy Farms, Segal Hop Ranch, and Hopsteiner.
It has been an incredible experience spending time with the growers out here and seeing all the work that goes into growing this crop we all love so much. We can’t wait to brew with these!
