Fresh Hop Festival Yakima

Always eager to let you know about interesting festivals around the country, we thought you might be interested in
the Fresh Hop Ale Festival, in downtown Yakima, Washington, coming up
on October 1. Yakima’s a little town in the Northwest known for growing lots of stuff, but hops are BIG biz

Yakima Valley growers claim to produce up to 70 percent of American hops used for brewing. If you head to the
festival, prep yourself for lots of drinking because they’ll be serving up beer galore, as well as fresh hop ale, a
unique drink that goes from vine to vat in 24 hours.
